Don’t be distracted, the attack on public education has started. Look up HJRES57

While we were distracted by all of 45th and company drama they tried to slip something evil by us. For those not familiar with education law you might be unaware that one of the big Regulations in Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty” was education reform and accountability. Specifically the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. This law had to be reauthorized every 5 years. This is the law that in 2002 under George W. Bush administration was revised to No Child Left Behind and required statewide standardized testing. The Obama administration made some revisions in 2015  called the new law Every Student Succeeds Act #ESSA. I mention this because in spite of the fact that #ESSA is not up for review or renewal until 2020 there is a Republican sponsored current resolution HJRes57 in the works. This resolution if passed would nullify current provision in the  #ESSA  and open the door for 45th and DeVos to literally rewrite how children in America will be educated.
