LISTEN NOW! Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM! These are exciting days that are happening within the Department of Education. When Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, was recently interviewed at the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference, she was asked about what new developments are taking place in our education department under the Trump Administration.
Presently, if we hear someone say that policies cannot be implemented for 4 years, if someone has children in high school, that means that by the time their child graduates school, they will have received none of the benefits from these policies. They are simply missing out. We need to embrace education freedom in our nation.
Secretary DeVos was asked about the specific meaning of what “vouchers” entail when applied to education. When discussing vouchers, Secretary DeVos shares an exhaustive list of what can fall under the category of mechanisms for education. But, she underscores the need for ‘education freedom’. Secretary DeVos further explains, “that allows us to think more broadly about what education should be.” As any parent or teacher understands, all children learn differently. “We need to look at a system, that for too long, has forced kids into more a ‘one-size fits all’ approach, and create environments where new creative approaches are able to come in and be tried…”
Every child and student deserve a choice of where they want to receive their education in order to choose their own destiny. How does this encourage you as a parent, or a student?
