Trump victory promises more autonomy for public schools, officials say


President-elect Donald Trump's surprise win means Louisiana public schools will enjoy new flexibility and more freedom in ongoing plans to revamp classroom operations for the next school year, officials said.

Education leaders also said they expect less federal involvement on issues like transgender students' access to school bathrooms, which sparked nationwide controversy, and how Louisiana allocates vouchers, which was challenged by President Barack Obama's administration.

"He is supportive of giving states more say versus the federal government on what is going on in education, which I think is fantastic," said Jim Garvey, president of the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education and also a Republican.
