Is anyone in the White House paying attention to the appointments for Trump’s education team? It’s understandable that with so many pressing policy concerns facing the Administration that a few bad eggs might get through the appointment process, but this is getting ridiculous!
The 74 reports that Jason Botel, Senior White House Adviser on Education, did not support Trump, favors an active federal role in education, supports Common Core, and is viewed by education advocacy groups in his home state of Maryland as a Progressive. He also publicly voiced his support for Black Lives Matter– who defaced Trump’s hotel in NYC.
Trump needs to tell this guy (and whoever suggested him), “You’re fired!”
