Betsy DeVos strikes out in court

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ attempts to swiftly roll back major  Obama-era policies at her agency are hitting a roadblock: federal  courts.

Judges have rebuffed DeVos’ attempts to change Obama policies dealing  with everything from student loan forgiveness to mandatory arbitration  agreements to racial disparities in special education programs.

As a result, the Education Department is being forced to carry out  Obama-era policies that the Trump administration had been fighting to  stop — stymying DeVos’ efforts to quickly impose a conservative imprint  on federal education policy over the past two years.
