Trump pick for education secretary believes churches should be more involved in education: is this leading us down a path towards fewer non-religious schools?
  • No responses have been submitted.
  • Separation of church and state will hold

    Despite Trump's education secretary pick, the United States is unlikely to move in the direction of a greater percentage of religious schools. It is likely that he will support measures to enable new private religious schools to be created, but religion will never be a factor in public school education in this country. Too many on both sides of the aisle are in favor of the separation between church and state for that to happen.

  • No, I don't think this will lead to fewer non-religious schools

    No, this will not cause a smaller number of non-religious schools, but it may make it harder for the families who don't have a religion or people who don't follow a certain religion to send their children to school. It just seems like Trump's pick for education secretary wants public schools to have daily prayer, which may be unconstitutional.

  • Trump pick for education secretary believes churches should be more involved in education: this is not leading us down a path towards fewer non-religious schools

    Trump pick for education secretary believes churches should be more involved in education: this is not leading us down a path towards fewer non-religious schools. It is purely more rhetoric to scare people into thinking as much. Given the state of government schools and the stupid students that are being churned out on a daily basis, perhaps God in said schools would be a great thing.

  • There are safeguards.

    Even though this person might have her own personal opinions, there are still constitutional safeguards that make sure people get the education they choose. A person still has a right to a free and appropriate public education. There will be more options with freedom of choice, not less. This person will have new ideas, but can't fundamentally change everything.
