Protesters shame, block entrance for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos during school visit

Protesters shame, block entrance for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos during school visit”

She eventually found a different entrance into the school. "I understand why some parents are concerned".

Video footage showed her leaving the door she was trying to enter and walk away. Susan Collins' earlier vote in committee in support of DeVos's nomination was one of the deciding votes in allowing the controversial billionaire's confirmation to move on to a vote in the full Senate.

One staff member at Jefferson said that she and many of her colleagues are troubled by DeVos's decades-long campaign to promote vouchers as a way to escape from public schools that work hard to serve all students. The history of the privatization of schools also has a connection to the creation of HBCU's after parents of white students were reluctant to send their children to schools with students of color after the passing of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. In fact, she's built her political "career" - if you can qualify her family's donations of around $200 million to the Republican Party a career - by advocating for charter schools and school choice in MI. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska defecting from their fellow Republicans, thus forcing Pence to cast the deciding vote. My message is that we have got to keep the pressure on the Department of Ed., on Betsy DeVos, to ensure that structures are in place that would safeguard our public schools and stay vigilant.

"Everyone will have a different way of demonstrating discontent with her policies", Davis said in response. The President's Counselor should know the ethical guidelines of her job before she violates them on television. While this hurt teachers and schools (and still does), it also brought communities together to support some of the institutions they hold so close - their neighborhood schools. "Every Maryland student, and every student in general, deserves the chance for a great education". That's false. The Wall Street Journal points out that charter school students in Detroit do significantly better on state tests than those at regular public schools and that most of the top schools in the city are charter schools while most of the worst are the regular schools. DeVos's nomination made it out of committee by just one vote.

The vote split along party lines, with U.S. Sens. It's why I called and emailed Sen.

At press time, it was unclear if she attempted another door.
