DeVos Confirmed as Education Secretary


WASHINGTON (AP) — Charter school advocate Betsy DeVos won confirmation as education secretary Tuesday by the slimmest of margins, pushed to approval only by the historic tie-breaking vote of Vice President Mike Pence.

DeVos is a passionate advocate for better education who has put her time and money into improving education for decades. She will be a breath of fresh air. Hopefully her affinity for pushing education decision-making as close to the kids as possible will remain strong and she will force the federal government to retreat from setting education policy altogether.

    Great job!

    Finally we will have an education secretary looking beyond narrow public school prism.
