New York City’s energetic charter school executive, Eva Moskowitz, met Wednesday with Donald Trump, as the president-elect moves to fill high-level government positions that include secretary of education.
Moskowitz is considered one of the contenders to oversee the nation’s schools.
Others include former DC Public Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee, Rep. Luke Messer (R-Indiana) and former Indiana schools chief Tony Bennett.
Trump is a supporter of school choice and has proposed a $20 billion block grant for states to provide more choices to 11 million students living in poverty.
Rudy Giuliani, a senior Trump adviser, predicted over the weekend that the president-elect would be “the best thing that ever happened for school choice and the charter school movement.”
