Talking Points: What You Can Say About Why the Senate Must Block Betsy DeVos's Confirmation
It's easy to talk to your senator about why they should oppose Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education. Here are some things you can say.
Betsy DeVos is extremely unqualified. She was unable to answer simple questions on education policy during her confirmation hearing.
DeVos failed to state if she would protect public education funding. In fact, her record indicates she would gut funding from public schools.
DeVos stated that whether schools should provide accommodations for students with disabilities should be left up to the states, a position that would be in violation of the the 30-year-old federal civil rights law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
DeVos' only involvement in government and education to date has been as an ultra-wealthy donor, using her access to state legislators to push for increased public funding of charter schools. Meanwhile, these same schools in her state are producing the lowest test scores in decades.
Confirming DeVos as Secretary of Education would risk the future of public education and the promise of a bright future for our children.
