What Betsy DeVos has been able to accomplish has been minimized only by the amount of pushback she’s received from people like you. Every time she’s tried to privatize public schools, called for regressive cuts to education, or rolled back protections for vulnerable children, we’ve stood up to her on behalf of our students.
Click here to see all the times Betsy DeVos has tried to undermine public education as education secretary.
Let’s be clear: Betsy DeVos was hand-picked by a president that knew her agenda and empowered her to pursue it.
But in 2020, we will have the opportunity to send a message to Betsy DeVos and her allies: it’s time we have leaders who have the backs of America’s educators and who will make public schools better for students. We will elect leaders who take public education seriously and will work to strengthen it, not undermine it.
That’s an opportunity we must seize—for the sake of America’s public school students and educators.
