All4Ed President Deb Delisle on President Trump’s State of the Union Remarks

WASHINGTON, DC—In response to President Trump’s State of the Union address to the nation on Tuesday night, Alliance for Excellent Education President and CEO Deb Delisle offered the following statement: 

“All young people in our country have the right to receive a high-quality, public K–12 education. However, rather than working to guarantee and strengthen that right, President Trump and Secretary DeVos continue to push for a voucher scheme that would siphon funds away from the public education system and serve only a small fraction of our students while ignoring the needs of the overwhelming majority of children whose futures depend on the very system the President condemns. It’s past time for this Administration to put forward a real plan for improving public education that will rebuild crumbling schools, correct historical and long-standing inequities—from school funding to access to advanced course work—and help school districts hire and retain the best teachers and school leaders.”
