Trump's Choice For Educaion Secretary Is Privatization Zealot
Trump picked a woman who has promoted Charter schools and the use of vouchers to promote school choice as his Education Secretary. More government money is spent on education on any other government service. Privatizing the public schools will send a lot of sharks after this opportunity. She has campaigned against closing Charter schools that have failed in her home state of Michigan. The NYT was critical of Trump's choice but he was congratulated for selecting a woman. This may be part of its effort to be nicer to Trump.
