Abstract

This week president-elect Donald Trump picked billionaire conservative activist, Betsy DeVos to be his Secretary of Education. Ursula Hackett writes that Trump’s choice shows that he is serious about implementing a radical new program of school vouchers, which would expand the role of the market in the US education system even further. She comments that while Trump’s plan to expand private school choice at the federal level may encounter some legislative and judicial speed bumps, the soon to be restored conservative Supreme Court majority will likely to be receptive to it.
