The U.S. Education Department announced Friday it is closing all schools across the country and suspending the enrollment of more than 30,000 charter schools, according to an advisory from President Donald Trump.
The move follows the administration’s decision to shutter schools in Illinois and Louisiana, which had closed dozens of charters after federal officials said the state failed to meet its enrollment targets.
The closures are expected to end in the coming weeks, according the department.
