Former President and 2024 candidate Donald Trump released a video on Thursday sharing his thoughts on the state of American education; “Our public schools have been taken over by the Radical Left maniacs,” Trump says.
“The Marxism being preached in our schools is also totally hostile to Judeo-Christian teachings, and in many ways, it is resembling an established new religion,” Trump says in the video. “For this reason, my administration will aggressively pursue potential violations of the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of the Constitution. That’s very simple.”
From Just The News:
He also outlined funding preferences and “favorable treatment” for all states and school districts that make the following education reforms:
- Abolish teacher tenure for grades K through 12 and adopt merit pay for high-performing ones.
- Cut the number of school administrators, including the “costly, divisive and unnecessary Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion bureaucracy.”
- Adopt a Parental Bill of Rights that includes complete curriculum transparency and a form of universal school choice.
- Implement the direct election of school principals by the parents.
