Trump taps Common Core foe Mick Zais for No. 2 post at Education Department
from Education Week
President Donald Trump has tapped Mitchell "Mick" Zais, the former South Carolina chief state school officer and a vehement opponent of the Common Core State Standards, as deputy secretary, the number two position at the U.S. Department of Education. Trump ran on getting rid of the Common Core — something he doesn't have the power to do. But it's hard to imagine Zais cheerleading the common core from his new post. As state chief in he tried to persuade South Carolina to dump the common core.
