Donald Trump Taps Indiana Lawmaker’s Staffer to Craft School Choice Plan
Republican nominee Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has tapped Rob Goad, who has worked for Indiana GOP Rep. Luke Messer in Congress, to work on school choice issues in the real estate executive’s bid for the White House.
Goad is on leave from Messer’s office and for the past two weeks has been in New York City working for the Trump campaign as a policy adviser, according to sources. He’s the first adviser for Trump to focus specifically on education issues. The campaign’s aim is to have Goad flesh out Trump’s previously stated support for school choice, specifically choice programs that have been successful in states, and possibly work on other K-12 education issues as well.
