re: Betsy DeVos
On Monday, the Senate will hold the final vote to confirm Betsy DeVos as the Secretary of Education.
Our education system needs a leader who understands the system, someone who cares about the future of our children in public schools and beyond. Betsy DeVos has never attended a public school, worked in a public school, or sent her kids to public schools, and she devoted her career to tearing down public education. So how can we trust that she will put the interest of students before her own? We simply can't, and that's why she should not be the next Secretary of Education.
All 48 Senate Democrats and two Republicans have said that they will be voting "NO." There needs to be one more Republican to vote "NO" to Betsy DeVos, and her nomination will then be nothing more than a distant, scary memory.
Stand with Democrats today. Add your name to say that Betsy DeVos is not the right person for the job and call on more Senate Republicans to reject her:
