The Health, Education Labor and Pensions Committee (H.E.L.P.) delayed the vote on U.S. Commissioner of Education nominee Betsy DeVos until 10 a.m. on January 31st. Your calls, letters & tweets are making a difference!
H.E.L.P. Chair Sen. Lamar Alexander must be nervous. All we need is 3 GOP Senators to see the light and vote NO!
DeVos is profoundly unqualified and she’s a known adversary of public education. DeVos would not be the nominee if she hadn’t put billions toward party politics, campaigns and legislation. Thanks to the delay, the Ethics review found 102 conflicts of interest ranging from investments in charter schools, testing companies and digital textbooks to collecting defaulted student loans.
Please keep taking action. This is a numbers game. Remember, Betsy DeVos refused to say she would not defund our public schools. She destroyed Detroit schools by pushing for-profit “Choice,” ignoring quality and harming children in the process.
Contact your two Senators daily. Tell them you’re opposed to Betsy DeVos. Call (202) 225-3121
