In the News: U.S. Education Secretary to Roll Out School Choice Plan in Indy

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will give a speech in Indianapolis on Monday night (tonight) at a summit hosted by the American Federation for Children. DeVos formerly served as the chairwoman of the AFC, an organization which promotes school choice.

The local Fox station reports

It’s expected DeVos will roll out a Trump administration plan to provide tax credits to corporations and individuals who donate money to groups and schools that provide school choice scholarships to students and parents.
