Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Views On Education


In the 2016 Presidential election, education hasn’t really been a top tiered topic of discussion.

Clinton, Trump and other previous candidates focused on national security, foreign policy and email scandals.

In either case, the candidates have given some insight into what their plans might be.

Here are some of the views that Trump and Clinton have on education:

Donald Trump

  • Pledged to invest $20 billion worth of vouchers for students to attend a school of their choice.
  • Supports charter schools
  • Criticizes teachers’ union
  • Promises to get rid of Common Core
  • Will fight Clinton’s debt-free college proposal

Hillary Clinton

  • Oppose Trump’s voucher program
  • Supports charter schools
  • Won endorsement for two national largest teacher unions
  • Supports Common Core (though rarely mentions it)
  • Supports debt-free college tuition for families earning less than $125k

Trump’s plan would use federal dollars to establish a grant to allow children living in poverty to attend the school of their choice.

Clinton is on the total opposite side of this argument and said it would “decimate public schools across America.”

Trump has said very little about higher education, though he criticized the government’s role in student lending, according to PBS.

With this 2016 election going the way it is, there’s no telling what if any of these proposals will ever happen.

How did Donald Trump rise to such successes? We at EDUinReview would like to take a minute and exam the education background of this multi-billionaire that is now the 2018 President of the United States. let’s get to it…

Personal life of Trump:

Trump was born on June 14, 1946 in New York. He was the fourth of five children in his family.

Trump in high school

Trump attended The Kew-Forest School in Forest Hills, Queens until he was 13 years old. Then, after causing some trouble at The Kew-Forest School, his parents transferred him to the New York Military Academy. Trump excelled in academics and sports while at NYMA. He earned many academic honors, was a member of the varsity football team in 1962, the varsity soccer team in 1963, and the varsity baseball team from 1962-1964. He was also the Cadet Captin-S4 (Cadet Battalion Logistics Officer) and lead his school in the Memorial Day parade down Fifth Avenue in 1964.

Trump in college

After high school, Trump attended Fordham University for two years. He then transferred to the Wharton Business School, where he graduated in 1968 with a Bachelor of Science in Economics and a concentration in finance.

“After I graduated from the New York Military Academy in 1964, I flirted briefly with the idea of attending film school,” Trump wrote in his book Trump: The Art of the Deal. “But in the end, I decided real estate was a much better business. I began by attending Fordham University…but after two years, I decided that as long as I had to be in college, I might as well test myself against the best. I applied to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and I got in….I was also very glad to get finished. I immediately moved back home and went to work full time with my father.”

Trump has enjoyed many financial successes during his career. He recently created an online university to share his “keys to success,” which is called Trump University. As of 2018, he is the republican President of the United States.

They are qualified professionals who lost their jobs, and recent college grads looking to find their place in this big, bad business world.
