Four days after meeting with Trump and Pence at Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump appoints DeVos as Education secretary. Trump:
Betsy DeVos is 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 honored to work with the President-elect on his vision to make American education great again. The status quo in ed is not acceptable.
