Thursday on Montana Talks: Time to Scrap Obama-Era Education Rule?
Is it time to scrap an Obama-era education rule that critics say could have played a role in the school shooting in Parkland, Florida?
Here's what Perry Pendley with the Mountain States Legal Foundation wrote to the Secretary of Education, according to the Washington Times:
“In the tragic aftermath of the murders in Florida, which were preventable, we simply cannot take the chance that other school districts, in response to a Dear Colleague letter issued in 2014 by the Obama administration, will continue to enforce or will implement the disastrous race-based, discipline-free program put in place in December of 2013 by Broward County,” William Perry Pendley, president of the Mountain States Legal Foundation, said Friday in a letter to Mrs. DeVos.
“The risk to human life and safety is far too great,” Mr. Pendley said.
We'll talk with Perry a little after 9 AM Thursday on "Montana Talks" with Aaron Flint.
