Description: Ronald Reagan entered the presidency promising to return K-12 education policy back to states and localities.  Ironically, Reagan ended up both expanding and legitimizing the federal role in schooling.

Kevin R. Kosar, author of the book Failing Grades: The Federal Politics of Education and the creator of the Federal Education Policy History website, answers this riddle and provides a concise introduction to Reagan’s education record.
