What Are President-Elect Trump’s Education Policies?

By Peggy Venable

While the pundits are analyzing the Presidential election, we at Texans for Education Opportunity are eager to share the President-elect’s stated education policy.

There is an education revolution taking place in America and Presidential candidate Donald Trump captured that reform mantle as he made school choice the cornerstone of his education policy.

While recent polling indicates that 70 percent of the voters support school choice, Trump vowed to leave education policy to the states.
