Sen. Al Franken Opposed to School Choice Except for Own Kids 44K/Year Private School

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) was highly critical of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos during her confirmation hearing, citing that DeVos had never attended a public school or sent a child to one, reported on March 2.

But Franken seems to like the idea of sending his own children to private schools they attended Dalton School in New York City where tuition is $44,640 per year.

Dalton is known for educating celebrities and children of royalty, reported.

And Franken himself enjoyed attending a private school.

According to an interview with Harvard Magazine, Franken was a math and science whiz as a boy, reported. As he approached secondary school years, his parents wanted to find a better school for their gifted student.

Franken ended up attending and graduating from Blake, one of the most exclusive private schools in the Minneapolis area, where the tuition for upperclassmen is currently $29,025 per year, reported.
