America Rising Squared (AR2) today launched a new digital ad campaign targeting five states in support of President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos.
The ad, called “Believe In Our Children,” is running online on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram nationally and in five targeted states: Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, and West Virginia. Watch the ad here and see the video below along with a full transcript.
BETSY DEVOS: “I am very honored that President-elect Trump has asked me to join his team and am grateful for his dedication to education. I share President-elect Trump’s view that it’s time to shift the debate from what the system thinks is best for kids to what moms and dads want, expect and deserve. Parents no longer believe that a one-size-fits-all model of learning meets the needs of every child…
DEVOS: “Yet, too many parents are denied access to the full range of options…choices that many of us here in this room have exercised for our own children. President-elect Trump and I know it won’t be Washington, D.C. that unlocks our nation’s potential, nor a bigger bureaucracy, tougher mandates or a federal agency. The answer is local control and listening to parents, students and teachers.”
DEVOS: “For me, it’s simple: I trust parents, and I believe in our children.”
