Next Monday, January 30th, the day before the Senate HELP committee votes on Betsy DeVos’ confirmation, Students Resisting Trump is walking out to protest the nomination of Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary.
This week is confirmation week. In the education world Besty Devos is getting all the attention, as the Senate will have her confirmation hearing today. During this hearing Senate members will bombard her with questions, but at no surprise to us, real student centered questions aren’t likely to make the list.
Betsy DeVos will soon be in DC for her confirmation hearing as Education Secretary. Like many progressives, we’re deeply concerned with the nomination of DeVos and the impact it will have on our communities.
