Advocacy group warns fellow Democrats: Don't become Trump's education secretary

 


Democrats, prompting a prominent Democratic education advocacy group to issue a warning to fellow party members: Don’t work for President-elect Donald Trump.

A Democrat who agreed to become Trump’s education secretary “would become an agent for an agenda that both contradicts progressive values and threatens grave harm to our nation’s most vulnerable kids,” Shavar Jeffries, president of Democrats for Education Reform, said in a statement Thursday.

Democrats whose names have circulated as possible picks for education secretary include Kevin Chavous, a former D.C. Council member who is a prominent national advocate for private school vouchers; Michelle Rhee, who rose to fame as the controversial chancellor of D.C. Public Schools from 2007 to 2010; and Eva Moskowitz, a former New York City Council member and founder and chief executive of Success Academy Charter Schools.
