Trump Administration Shuts Down Michelle Obama's Girls Education Program-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #CNN reports that the #Trump administration is looking to end former first lady #MichelleObama’s girls education program. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The program called "Let Girls Learn", was founded in 2015 as an initiative to provide girls in developing nations with access to an education. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Moving forward, we will not continue to use the Let Girls Learnbrand or maintain a stand-along program,” Sheila Crowley, the acting director of the Peace Corps, stated in an email to employees. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The former first lady's ex-chief of staff, Tina Tchen, said it's "unfortunate” that the program will not be continuing past the #Obama administration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "We think that this is an issue that has bipartisan support, it’s really not a Republican or Democratic issue,” Tchen said.
