BEDMINSTER, N.J. (CBS/AP) — President-elect Donald Trump met Saturday with education activists at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Michelle Rhee, a former chancellor of Washington, D.C., schools, came to meet with Trump Saturday, accompanied by her husband Kevin Johnson, a former professional basketball player and the Democratic mayor of Sacramento. Rhee was considered a polarizing leader, who fought teachers unions in pushing for charter schools.


Trump also met with Betsy DeVos. She’s a Republican donor from Michigan and an advocate for school vouchers.

The meetings come as Trump is starting to appoint top administration officials.
