AFC Congratulates Betsy DeVos on Nomination for U.S. Secretary of Education

Nov 23, 2016 | Press Release

The American Federation for Children issued the following statement upon the nomination of Betsy DeVos as the nation’s 11th U.S. Secretary of Education. Most recently, DeVos has served the chairman of the American Federation for Children, the nation’s voice for educational choice.

John F. Kirtley, vice chairman of the American Federation for Children said:

“We applaud President-elect Donald Trump for choosing and placing his trust in Betsy DeVos to serve as the next U.S. Secretary of Education. For more than 20 years, Betsy has fought relentlessly for the right of every child – especially disadvantaged children – to receive a quality education of their parents’ choice. We are confident Betsy will take the same passion, commitment and leadership she’s shown in the school choice movement to the helm of the U.S. Department of Education.”

Are working class families outside of Milwaukee & Racine too "rich" for educational opportunity for their children?

Ed Willing I agree. This is frustrating. My son shouldn't have to possibly lose his ability to attend a choice school because his parents make more money either. Once you're in, you're in. But any interruption invalidates your qualification. This discriminates against the middle class.
Jennifer Thomas It's going to get worse with Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary.
George F. Ashley That's stupid.
