Secretary Devos will be great for Colorado Education
There has been quite a bit of hand-wringing on the left about the nominee for the highest educational office in the land. The AFT calls her nomination the, “destruction of public education.” Senator Schumer has pointed her out as one of the nominees that he deems most necessary to obstruct when the hearings begin after the inauguration. But we as Colorado Republicans and citizens wanting the best for our students should embrace this nominee.
Betsy Devos has been a friend of educational reform for decades. Spending much of her wealth on campaigns to bring more school choice to parents in her home state of Michigan. She was one of the architects of the Detroit Charter school system, has served on the board of the Alliance for Schools Choice and was a chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party in the late nineties. While these area great educational references for a nominee that is not what should excite Colorado Republicans about her future at the Department of Education.
