Senate Dems Expected to Grill Trump Education Pick DeVos
WASHINGTON -- Betsy DeVos has been a political heavyweight for decades, spending millions to advance conservative causes. But Tuesday evening, Donald Trump's nominee for education secretary will be asked to fill in her own personal beliefs on a host of controversial education issues. Democrats on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions are preparing to question DeVos on a broad scope of topics, honing in on the fact that, to date, DeVos has been largely a blank slate on college affordability, transgender issues in schools and for-profit colleges.
