Sen. Warren Gets Assist in Opposition to Betsy DeVos From Mass. Charters Group
Like many Democrats, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a member of the Senate education committee, is among many Democrats to express opposition to Betsy DeVos, President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to be education secretary. Unlike other Democrats, Warren has her home-state charter school association in her corner.
On Monday, the Massachusetts Charter Public School Association sent a letter to Warren saying that her support for vouchers, and her backing for charter schools in Michigan that reportedly suffer from “lax oversight” are concerning. Along with some Democratic members of the House, the Massachusetts charter group says her record should worry supporters of public education.
