Continuing his announcements of cabinet appointees, Donald Trump said he is nominating Betsy DeVos for Education secretary - a billionaire GOP donor, she also once served as head of the Michigan Republican Party. In a statement Wednesday, Trump called DeVos a "brilliant and passionate education advocate." “Under her leadership we will reform the U.S. education system and break the bureaucracy that is holding our children back so that we can deliver world-class education and school choice to all families. I am pleased to nominate Betsy as Secretary of the Department of Education," Trump said. She is the current chairwoman of the American Federation for Children, an education advocacy group pushing school choice policies. DeVos said she was "honored" and vowed to work with the president-elect on his "vision to make American education great again." She said in a statement that “the status quo in education is not acceptable" and added that "together, we can work to make transformational change that ensures every student in America has the opportunity to fulfill his or her highest potential. "She has a long and distinguished history championing the right of all parents to choose schools that best ensure their children’s success. Her allegiance is to families, particularly those struggling at the bottom of the economic ladder, not to an outdated public education model that has failed them from one generation to the next," he said in a Facebook post. But perhaps what is most important is that according to sources, she opposed Common Core once it became a federal standard. To be sure, she confirmed as much moments ago when in a tweet she effectively warned that the Common Core Curriculum is on its way out. This woman being pro common core, is just more media spin on another Donald Trump cabinet choice. They have confused DeVos being pro school choice, and have spun it into this woman being pro common core on multiple media outlets. Being pro school choice is one of the first steps in destroying common core, as common core is a forced education program created by the Bush administration and pushed by the Obama administration. Many of you are asking about Common Core. To clarify, I am not a supporter—period. and this is a tweet she sent out on Twitter...Which kills all the media spinning of Besty DeVos being pro common core. The media has failed again in trying to spread false rhetoric on Trump, and this time the false narrative lasted only a couple of hours. Quit falling for the mainstream media BS when it comes to President Trump!
