Trump’s New Education Platform: Principals Elected By Parents, Patriotism Certifications For Teachers [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Former President Trump called for school principals to be elected by students’ parents in a new campaign video released on Thursday.

“More than anyone else, parents know what their children need,” Trump said. “If any principal is not getting the job done, the parents should be able to vote to fire them and select someone who will. This will be the ultimate form of local control.”

Trump vowed to reward states and school districts that implement principal elections, as well as those that abolish tenure for K-12 teachers, reduce the number of school administrators and adopt a parental bill of rights.
