Re: The New National Equivalency Standards in Education

Dear Educators,

You are standing at the dawn of a new era here in America. I know. It makes the heart race, doesn’t it? As you know, education must adapt if it is to remain relevant and if state testing measurements are to remain accurate and state testers are to remain paid. Thus the New National Equivalency Standards for the Education of Public School Students in America. These standards reflect the values, the core ethics and the alternative facts of the Trump administration. They are being deployed nationwide as part of Trump’s promise to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. I know you will all be as excited as I am to begin immediately implementing these equivalencies in your classes across all grade levels and across all curriculum areas in order to enhance public education.

We are currently working on a sweeping public school textbook revision. Stand by for news.

Meanwhile, keep up the good work in public education.

Yours truly,

Betsy DeVos

Secretary of Education
