What Educators, Advocacy Groups Are Saying About Betsy Devos’ Rocky Confirmation

Education and advocacy groups reacted swiftly to Betsy DeVos’ confirmation as U.S. Secretary of Education Tuesday, with supporters praising the West Michigan native and opponents questioning whether she’ll promote school choice at the expense of traditional public schools.

DeVos was confirmed following a marathon 24-hour debate in the Senate, where Democrats decried the West Michigan native as inexperienced and said her support of taxpayer-funded vouchers and charter schools have undermined traditional public schools.
