Trump Calls Education ‘Civil Rights Issue Of Our Time’ During School Visit
From the New York Post:
President Trump got to work on the “civil rights issue of our time” Friday — which, in his words, is education — visiting a Catholic school in Florida to rally support for his policies.
Trump’s visit capped off a week in which he addressed the nation in a Joint Session of Congress, pledging to fix the education system in America, invoking civil rights and claiming it could be fixed using school choice — using public funds to enroll students in alternative charter schools and private schools as traditional public schools.
“We want millions more to have the same chance to achieve the great success that you’re achieving,” said Trump during his visit to St. Andrew Catholic School in Orlando, which receives a state funded benefit to operate as a religious school.
