Congressional Review Act Overturns the DOE's Teacher Preparation Rules

Politics K-12

The Senate voted 59 to 40 on Wednesday to overturn regulations governing teacher-preparation programs that were approved by the Obama administration late last year.

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., introduced the measure blocking the rules late last week. Senate Joint Resolution 26 had nine other Republican co-sponsors, including Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., the chairman of the Senate education committee. The House also voted last month to block the rules, approving a resolution introduced by Kentucky Republican Rep. Brett Guthrie, and President Donald Trump is widely expected to back the move.

"This regulation actually makes the assumption that bureaucrats in Washington are competent to micromanage teacher-training programs in America. That's what this regulation ultimately does, and it's absurd," Sasse said on the Senate floor before the vote.
