School Choice Group Denies Coordination With DeVos

A school-choice advocacy group formerly chaired by Betsy DeVos is denying any ongoing coordination with her after a staffer purported to invite guests on her behalf to a congressional nomination hearing. Critics say the invitation — included in email correspondence obtained by The Detroit News — raises questions about DeVos’ ties to the nonprofit American Federation for Children, which she said she resigned from Nov. 22 after President Donald Trump nominated her to lead the U.S. Department of Education.
