Former Ed. Secretary Lambasts Budget, Questions Efficacy of Vouchers (Video)

| No comments

For an interview originally streamed via Facebook Live, Education Week correspondent Kavitha Cardoza sat down with John King, the former U.S. Secretary of Education, to discuss school choice, President Trump's proposed budget, and more. Expressing skepticism about vouchers' effectiveness and calling the budget an "assault on the American Dream," the former secretary shows he has a lot to say about the current direction of federal education policy.
