"Effective leaders for education must be able to navigate increasingly complex, political and changing environments at the local, state and national levels.” - IEL

EPFP is designed to prepare leaders who can be effective in turbulent contemporary environments. Fellows are equipped with a deeper understanding of the policymaking processes that drive educational practice. They are introduced to education reform ideas and issues through program activities focused on U.S. and global issues, but anchored by their state EPFP program's context. Interactions with researchers, politicians and top officials in public, private and non-profit organizations and agencies give Fellows opportunities to learn about leaders and leadership, increase their knowledge of education and related policy issues and refine their understanding of policymaking and implementation processes. Fellows also become familiar with range of practices and strategies leaders use to function effectively in the policy environment and the connections and disconnections among local, state and national policies.

It directs Secretary DeVos to review and, if necessary, modify and repeal regulations and guidance previously issued by the Department that overstep the legal authority of the federal government.  “My Administration has been working to reverse this federal power grab and give power back to families, cities, [and] states. Give power back to localities…We know that local communities do it best and know it best” the President said at the signing. Read the remarks and watch the video.
