Summary:

  • Even though state and local governments are in charge of a lot of education policy, Trump’s ideas significantly change from what most people think.

  • When taken as a whole, they show the former president’s desire to add his voice to discussions about the nation’s school systems that have erupted in state capitals.

  • Trump’s education plan during his tenure in office focused more on expanding school choice, including a federal tax credit to assist parents in paying for private school tuition than it did on cultural aspects.

  • In addition, he advocates for a “parental bill of rights” and the elimination of administrative positions.

  • Also being removed from the Department of Education, according to Trump, are “the radical fanatics and Marxists.”

“Personnel is policy,” as the saying goes, and if communists with pink hair teach our children, we have a severe problem, according to Trump. We spend the most money on education even though we’re last on the list, but we’ll always be at the top no matter where we are on the globe.

Even though state and local governments are responsible for much of education policy, Trump’s ideas run counter to popular belief. When taken as a whole, they show the former president’s desire to add his voice to discussions about the nation’s school systems that have erupted in state capitals.

Even though transgender women have been allowed to compete in women’s categories in the Olympics since 2003 and in the NCAA since 2010, conservatives have pushed for limits on transgender athletes.

But recently, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), who is running for president in 2024, stopped high schools in his state from teaching an Advanced Placement African American studies course because it included information about “queer theory” and movements that want to “abolish jails.”

The White House and education groups like the College Board have made it clear that they don’t like DeSantis. They say he doesn’t have the right background and authority to make such decisions. Most public schools in the United States do not teach critical race theory, say school administrators and progressive activists. This is true even in places where lawmakers are trying to ban it.

Trump’s policy proposal, though, emphasizes how prepared Republicans are for such a conflict. Trump’s education plan during his tenure in office focused more on expanding school choice, including a federal tax credit to assist parents in paying for private school tuition, than it did on cultural aspects.

Trump, who is once again running for office, is requesting funding advantages and favorable treatment for states and school districts that abide by his requests to abolish teacher tenure and create a certification program for educators who “embrace American principles.” He also wants a “bill of rights for parents” and the end of administrative positions. Also being removed from the Department of Education, according to Trump, are “the radical fanatics and Marxists.”
