Betsy DeVos expected to unveil Trump’s voucher agenda in Indianapolis
05/18/2017

Politico is reporting that President Donald Trump’s controversial education secretary, Betsy DeVos, “is expected to offer details about the Trump administration’s vision for a federal investment in school choice in a major policy speech Monday,” in Indianapolis.

Per Politico:

“DeVos is slated to speak at an Indianapolis summit hosted by her former group, The American Federation for Children, which advocates for school choice, the Education Department confirmed Wednesday night.

She is believed to be preparing to unveil an education tax credit scholarship proposal, which the Trump administration has been considering for some time. What DeVos is expected to outline could look different than a bill pushed by Republicans Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Rep. Todd Rokita of Indiana. If passed by Congress, the proposal could channel billions of public dollars to working class families to help them pay for private schools, including religious schools.”
