This is cute. Watch as President Trump and Vice President Pence suddenly materialize behind Education Secretary Betsy DeVos during an event on school choice.
Trump seems to be serious about expanding children’s access to better schools. And in Betsy DeVos, he has a fighter who is not afraid to take the arrows that slung at her by the moribund education establishment that wants to preserve the failing system. Nothing could be more important than giving kids, particularly the poorest among us, the chance to realize their God-given talents by getting a strong start with a solid education.
From Trump’s remarks:
So yesterday I said that our spending bill was a win for the American people, which is exactly what it was — an amazing day. And this is what winning for young children and kids from all over the country looks like. The opportunity scholarship program that we’re funding allows families in the inner city of our nation’s capital to leave failing public schools and attend a private school, making an extraordinary difference in these incredible young lives.
