Williamson (Bill) Evers, a research fellow for the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, has been tapped to serve on Donald Trump’s presidential transition team as an education advisor should he win the election. In terms of how a Trump administration would handle education this is a good sign. Bill has been a friend of Truth in American Education and an outspoken opponent of the Common Core State Standards.
Education Week reports:
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has picked Williamson M. Evers, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, and Gerard Robinson, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, to be on his presidential transition team for education, according to multiple sources.
Evers served as an assistant secretary for policy at the U.S. Department of Education from 2007 to 2009, and also was an adviser to former U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings in 2007 under President George W. Bush. Robinson served as Florida’s education commissioner from 2011 to 2012, and has also served as Virginia’s education secretary and as the president of the Black Alliance for Educational Options.
However, I don’t know anything about Gerard Robinson. If anyone from Florida or Virginia read this I’d appreciate you leaving a comment with information.
