Trump and “higher national standards”


“The President-elect and Vice President-elect then met with Ms. Michelle Rhee and enjoyed an in-depth discussion about the future of public education in our country. This included the possibility for increasing competition through charter and choice schools. They also brought the idea of merit pay for teachers going above and beyond in their classrooms into the conversation. 
Their discussion with Ms. Betsy DeVos was focused on the Common Core mission, and setting higher national standards and promoting the growth of school choice across the nation.”

Higher national standards. Ah, anti-Common Core people who thought Trump was their answer- you just got as screwed as those who realized today that Social Security might be gone soon….
