Remember when Al Franken lit into Betsy DeVos over her school choice beliefs?
Some might have thought Franken opposed school choice. He does, in fact, support school choice.
…the Senator also has very little experience with public schools.
According to an interview with Harvard magazine, Franken was a math and science whiz as a boy. As he approached secondary school years, his parents wanted to find a better school for their gifted student. Franken ended up attending and graduating from Blake, one of the most exclusive private schools in the Minneapolis area, where the tuition for upperclassmen is currently $29,025 per year.
Franken’s two kids also avoided public school. Instead, his kids attended The Dalton School in New York City where tuition is $44,640 per year. Dalton is known for educating celebrities and children of royalty.
Forget about Franken; I sincerely doubt you find the children of many superstar superintendents toiling away in public schools.
