Herold, Benjamin. “Under Trump, Ed-Tech Leadership Is Big Question Mark.” Education Week. 5 May 2017.
With more cuts in the federal education budget potentially looming in the fall, and the Trump administration clearly signaling its general preference for market-based solutions, it could be that private-sector technology companies will have an opportunity to step into a vacuum, said Douglas A. Levin, a consultant with EdTech Strategies and a former director of the State Educational Technology Directors Association.
“There’s no indication to suggest the Trump White House will lend its voice to this issue,” Levin said. “And the notion that states will somehow invest in innovation during a time of dramatic scarcity is not realistic.”
