To the Editor:


Betsy DeVos is unfit to serve as Secretary of Education. DeVos has provided a glimpse of her plan by what she did in her home state of Michigan. The DeVos family heavily funded a failed push for constitutional change to allow for vouchers. She supports the rapid expansion of charter schools and online schools with minimal regulation. Despite unsatisfactory results, DeVos remains deliberately indifferent to the failure of these schools to serve the needs of communities.


As Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos could have the Federal Government behind her previously self-funded mission to implement vouchers and promote non-public schools. Neither she, nor her children have any personal exposure to a free and appropriate public education. Betsy DeVos has an avowed agenda to dismantle public education and turn it over to unjustly enrich private companies. She is not worthy of confirmation.  Readers must let their Senators know.
