“With Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, our children and parents will have a passionate advocate representing their interests in Washington. Secretary DeVos has the courage, knowledge and leadership ability to reprioritize the public education system around the needs of students – all students. She is a believer in empowering families with the ability to decide, not institutions with the ability to dictate. Never has her voice been more welcome or necessary.”
