Folks in edu-Washington who have worked for either former President George W. Bush, or former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, are volunteering Trump's education team.

The House Freedom Caucus posted a list of "recommended list of regulations to remove" in the first 100 days of President-elect Donald Trump's administration.

The Obama administration's teacher-preparation regulations under the Higher Education Act and its accountability regulations for the Every Student Succeeds Act could be headed for the trash heap.
