Secretary of Education will lead Trump administration’s efforts to protect students, arm trained teachers, and encourage other gun-related policy proposals
“Everything is on the table” for securing schools against attacks like Parkland, Florida’s high school massacre, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said Monday on NBC News’ “Today” morning show.
