Adam Kissel's Appointment Reflects Brilliantly on the Trump Administration
A friend just forwarded an article in Reason.com about Education Secretary Betsy DeVos's appointment of Adam Kissel to deputy assistant secretary for higher education programs. I worked with Adam on a grant several years ago when he was with the Charles G. Koch Foundation, and he was professional, knowledgeable, and effective. He had previously worked for the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, where he also had done important work. Adam combines a restrained brilliance with integrity and a commitment to civil liberties. President Trump's appointments of Deputy Assistant Secretary Kissel, Secretary DeVos, and regulatory czar Neomi Rao augur well for the course the Trump administration will take.
