Speech given Thursday, August 18, 2016, in Charlotte, North Carolina.
On education, so important, we are going to give students choice, and allow charter schools to thrive. We are going to end tenure policies that reward bad teachers and hurt our great, good teachers. My opponent wants to deny students choice and opportunity, all to get a little bit more money from the education bureaucracy. She doesn’t care how many young dreams are dashed or destroyed. And they’re destroyed. Young people are destroyed before they even start.
We are going to work closely with African American parents and children. We are going to work with the parents, students. We are going to work with everybody in the African American community in the inner cities – and what a big difference that is going to make.
It’s one of the things I most look forward to doing. This means a lot to me, and it is going to be a top priority in a Trump Administration.
