The stunning election of Donald Trump last week left many shocked, saddened and feeling uncertain about the future. It also left the fate of federal education policy unclear. Will he shut down the Department of Education completely? Will he expand charter and private school options? Will he roll back the federal government’s role in the student loan business?
I asked experts and LinkedIn members to weigh in on what Trump’s impending presidency might mean for education––and the economy more broadly. Here’s a roundup of the best responses.
Clued In: Influencer and Times Higher Education editor Chris Parr examines the clues we have so far on Trump’s higher education plans.

Free Speech: A LinkedIn Campus Editor and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo student says Trump’s win shows a lack of freedom of expression on his college campus.
