public education alert! anyone who relies on fafsa!
All friends of public education, but especially friends who live in the states listed below:
The Betsy DeVos confirmation vote was delayed due to the congressional ethics review revealing that she has 102 major conflicts of interest, including financial stake in for-profit education that she has declined to disentangle herself from. This is not someone we can trust to play fair with young people’s chances. The hearing of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions will now be held at 10 a.m. Jan. 31, according to an advisory from the committee.
If possible, give your senators a call and tell them how you feel about DeVos. If three Republican senators vote no for DeVos, she won’t be confirmed.
