Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released the following statement after President Trump’s address to the joint session of Congress:
Tonight, President Trump delivered on his promise to support school choice and offer students access to quality options. No child, regardless of their ZIP code or family income, should be denied access to quality education.
For far too long, Washington has resisted calls by parents, students and teachers to enact meaningful reforms. Tonight’s speech marked a dramatic shift toward a future that puts the needs of our nation’s students first.
