The first 100 days of the Trump Administration were filled with curious incidents and whiplash-inducing statements and retractions regarding education. As the school year winds down, there is still uncertainty—as well as evidence that many programs and supports for students are under threat. Our first offerings on this page raised concerns about school discipline policy, Title IX enforcement, and the influence of conservative groups on Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos's approach to curriculum and school choice. Since then, evidence has mounted that the Trump Administration will not become more "moderate" on policies that disproportionately impact gender, ability, and racial equity in education, from kindergarten to graduate school.
