Indeed, both jurisdictions have strict laws regulating the continued schooling options for child actors. For example, child actors must have an opportunity to either attend a public or private school or have an on-set tutor.

Many teachers’ unions fear the newly appointed secretary will not serve as an advocate for public education. Indeed, only days after her announced appointment in late November, the American Federation of Teachers issued a tersely worded response: “In nominating DeVos, Trump makes it loud and clear that his education policy will focus on privatizing, defunding and destroying public education in America.
