De Vos Confirmed

Never has there been such a fight.  This shows how teachers, unions, and parents can work together.
De Vos is a serious problem.  See all the prior posts.

The Senate just voted to confirm billionaire Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary.

The vote came down to a 50-50 tie. In order to get DeVos confirmed, Vice President Mike Pence had to cast the deciding vote -- the first time a VP has broken a tie on a Cabinet nominee in our nation’s history.

Betsy DeVos now joins a Trump Administration that’s truly ripe for corruption. Sherrod will have to work even harder to stop DeVos from taking funding away from public schools in Ohio and around the country.

This confirmation was a blow -- but we can’t waste any time moving forward. Betsy DeVos was confirmed. Let’s remind her, Donald Trump, and the entire administration that they work for the American people.

Not corporations.

Not private educational institutions.
