President Trump said that his administration is “restoring local control” over education policy at an executive order-signing on Wednesday.

“This executive order directs Secretary DeVos to review current federal regulations, and ensure that they don’t obstruct the ability of states, local governments, teachers, and most importantly, parents to make the best decision for their students and, in many cases, for their children,” Trump said.

“The time has come to empower parents and teachers to make the decisions that help their students achieve success,” he added.

Trump quoted Thomas Jefferson in defense of local control. “I believe the states can best govern our home concerns,” he read aloud.

“Together we are going to fight to give our children the bright and beautiful future they deserve.”
