Joe Biden, a former vice president, said to public school teachers on Friday that he would appoint a teacher as secretary of education as his first act as president.
But he also promised something regarding that position.
To avoid any confusion with the media, Biden assured Jill Biden, a professor at a community college, that she would not be appointed. She would be a good choice.
During the National Education Association’s annual representative assembly in Houston, Biden addressed a roundtable for 2020 contenders. During the forum hosted by the largest labor union in the country, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who has previously stated she would name a teacher, reaffirmed her intention to do so.
She stated that the incumbent Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, “need not apply.”
School busing was a hot topic during the first Democratic presidential primary debate in June, but Biden wasn’t questioned on it. He came under fire from Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) for his support of legislation restricting the use of federal monies for integrated busing in the 1970s while he was a senator for Delaware.
Harris, who participated in the forum afterward, wasn’t questioned about busing. in teacher-submitted questions but left it out.
