Michelle Obama’s daughter and wife Michelle Obama launched the Secretary of Education’s Early Childhood Initiative to promote her father’s agenda of universal preschool, according to an Associated Press report.
The Obama family also has a history of making educational announcements that often go unmentioned by the mainstream media.
In 2015, the Obams launched the “Early Head Start for All,” a new initiative that included an advertisement that featured a little girl and her father.
That same year, the president unveiled the “Diversity in Education” plan to support low-income children and families.
As a presidential candidate, Michelle Obama had promised to expand preschool access for children of color, and in 2016, she pledged to expand early childhood education to “children of color” by 2020.
President Barack Obama announces his policies and priorities for his second term in the Oval Office on January 20, 2021.
The first year of his second presidential term, President Donald Trump made an attempt to undo the Obama-era policies.
Trump has said he wants to make sure every child in America has access to a quality preschool experience.
