On February 1, two resolutions were introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by republicans to rescind Obama administration federal regulations for teacher preparation programs (House Joint Resolution 58) and ESSA accountability (House Joint Resolution 57). On Tuesday, the House passed the two resolutions along party lines and they now will move to the Senate. The White has House reported President Trump would sign them. CEC has weighed in on our concerns regarding the teacher preparation regulations particularly the provision that uses the weight of test scores in the evaluation of higher education programs. CEC supports the ESSA accountability regulations as they hold states accountable to children and disabilities. Stay tuned for more updates in the future!
