Alexandria, Va. – Feb. 6, 2017 – Today, Daniel A. Domenech, executive director of AASA, The School Superintendents Association, issued the following statement on recent efforts of Congress to rescind certain education regulations:

“AASA worked hard to support completion of what became the Every Student Succeeds Act, a bold reauthorization designed to provided state and local education agencies with the authority and flexibility they need to grow student learning and expand education innovation. 

“We applaud Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Representatives Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), Todd Rokita (R-Ind.) and Brett Guthrie (R-Ky.) for their effort to include the final regulations on the ESSA accountability regulations and teacher preparation programs in the Congressional Review Act disapproval resolutions. In both cases, the final regulations reach beyond the intent of the underlying statute, constructing unnecessary barriers to state and local leadership.
