Betsy DeVos to Charter School Leaders: Your Schools ‘Are Not the One Cure-all’
In an address to charter school advocates, leaders, and teachers in Washington D.C., U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos appeared to chide charter supporters who oppose her push to expand private school choice.
She also criticized rules designed to ensure charter quality, but that — in her telling — had turned into red tape, stifling innovation.
“Charters are not the one cure-all to the ills that beset education,” she said at the conference of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. “Let’s be honest: there’s no such thing as a cure-all in education.”
