Mead On Trump’s Childcare Idea, See Ya ESSA Regs! LGBT And Schools, Steele On Collaborating, Great Moments In Project Based Learning, And Edujobs!

Lots of edujobs down the page, scroll down – especially if your week was not what you hoped!

The Obama Administration’s ESSA regs are history. They were not perfect, this stuff never is, but it’s a lot of work out the window and needless uncertainty for states and school districts trying to implement the new law.  Also, huge blow for Democrats who tried to put lipstick on this pig when it first passed and now are left holding the bag. But education is merely a bit player in a broader tectonic political change that is happening right now. 

In U.S. News & World Report Sara Mead takes a look at problems with President Trump’s child care plans and some ideas for improvement.  Also in US News’ Lauren Camera on President Trump’s education chances.

Andrew Rayner on why the LGBT issue is more than the bathroom debate. Secretary of Education DeVos met with parents of LGBT youth this week.

There’s a Jacobin quality to the professional education left – so Jennifer Steele says they might as well work with DeVos. Well, not exactly but close enough! Read the piece, interesting take.
