Trump’s Education Plan Looks to Conservatives

Trump recently picked Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. to head up a task force under U.S. Education Secretary DeVos that will scrutinize the U.S. Department of Education policies and procedures.

Trump is putting his finger on what The Atlantic calls “conspicuous conservativism,” which is a growing movement among Christian colleges to proclaim their politically conservative views to prospective students and to deny federal funds so that the federal government cannot control them.
