UPDATE: Back in February, I sent a letter to Betsy DeVos, saying that our members and I are demanding answers from her about how she plans to ensure educational opportunity for every student.
Today I am renewing my call for Betsy DeVos to clearly and satisfactorily answer our questions on the critical work of the federal Department of Education. And I am renewing my call for you to add your name.
Read my letter to Betsy DeVos below, and add your name to our call for answers.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos called me the other day saying we should talk. But this seems premature. I’m still struck by the lack of clear answers she gave the public at her Senate hearing.
There is no doubt where we stand on issues critical to supporting students and public education, but Americans have a right to know where she stands.
So I sent her a letter, asking for the answers that we didn’t get from her confirmation hearing. I have yet to receive a response, but I wanted to share the letter with you.
Let’s make sure Betsy DeVos knows that while she may have been confirmed by the slimmest of margins, parents, students and educators are not backing down.
