What They Are Saying About Betsy DeVos – 3



Here are some thoughtful views on the nomination of Betsy DeVos as U.S. Secretary of Education and what it means for education reform nationwide:

“Betsy DeVos is an inspired choice for U.S. Secretary of Education for a number of reasons, but the most important is that she’s an unapologetic proponent of local control. After years of federal overreach on education matters, she has pledged to return control of education to the states, where it belongs.”

Wheeling News-Register, DeVos Will Make Students Her Top Priority 

“DeVos has been a champion for school choice, especially in her home state of Michigan where she helped give poor families some of the same choices available to the rich.”
“Betsy DeVos is eminently qualified to be this country’s Secretary of Education. She has worked to expand school choice, virtual education, education savings accounts and other programs that have given hundreds of thousands of students access to a quality education regardless of their income levels, what neighborhoods they live in, or their race.”

The Journal (W.Va.), Senate should confirm DeVos

“Teresa Weatherall Neal, superintendent of the Grand Rapids Public School district, has praised the selection of DeVos. ‘I’m really excited for the children across the nation … She has been a wonderful supporter of GRPS and our transition plan. She knows education. She knows what it is going to take in order for our kids to be helped.’”
