Trump Transition: School Choice Advocate Betsy DeVos Tabbed As Education Secretary

President-Elect Donald Trump said he is sick of what the Democrats have done to inner cities schools and how they have destroyed education year after year. He’s now chosen Betsy DeVos to fill the Education Secretary cabinet position. DeVos is huge on School Choice and Charter Schools.

If Trump plays this right the GOP could get their fair share the black vote in future elections. School choice and inner city works projects using local workers would be a good place to start. Like he said “what could it hurt.”

Charter schools have a better record graduating kids. Many schools are far better than public schools, and many offer other skills that the public schools don’t offer.

From Fox News:

President-elect Donald Trump has selected a charter school advocate and GOP donor from Michigan to be education secretary.

Betsy DeVos becomes the second woman chosen to fill a spot in Trump’s Cabinet. Earlier Wednesday, Trump named South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations earlier in the day.

Both selections require Senate confirmation.

Trump calls DeVos “a brilliant and passionate education advocate.”

DeVos heads the advocacy group American Federation for Children. She’s known for supporting charter schools and vouchers.

Before Trump’s announcement, some conservatives were complaining about DeVos’ ties to the political establishment. They also warned that she previously supported Common Core standards that Trump railed against during the campaign.

The 58-year-old DeVos is a former Michigan Republican Party chairwoman. Her husband, Dick, is an heir to the Amway fortune and a former company president.

More about Betsy can be seen in this video here:

I’ve seen a lot of people online talk about DeVos and common core. I am sure Trump made it perfectly clear his administration is not about that and it has no place to grow.

People seriously need to chill about her being in favor of common core. Were any of you in the room during the interview? Give the Trump a chance to make appointments without you couch potatoes criticizing his every step! And give her an opportunity to work with Trump to better education.

Oh yeah, I thought he was a misogynist? Lol. Liberals are infuriated with who he’s appointing, women and men “of color.” They’re losing their minds because the lies they’ve come up with are being discovered.
