The Senate Committee on Health Education Labor and Pensions is slated to vote this morning on President’s Trump’s nomination for U.S. Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos.
DeVos has spent years working to expand educational opportunities for disadvantaged children through the use of charter schools and private school vouchers. Teachers unions and liberal Democrats have called DeVos unqualified. Last week policy organizations from across the country – including Civitas — demonstrated their support for DeVos in a letter of support.
According to Washington insiders , a party-line vote is expected. The nomination would then to the full Senate.
