This is a link to a letter from several Republican (and unfortunately even some Democrats) state legislators from around the country urging the approval of the nomination of Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education. Thankfully, there are no Delaware Democrats that signed on the letter. But Delaware is shamefully represented by Republican State Senators Gary Simpson, Greg Lavelle, Anthony DeCollo, Ernie Lopez and Brian Pettyjohn. If you are one of their constituents, and hell, even if you are not, you might want to contact them to register your displeasure with them.
To quote Delaware United, this, and Betsy DeVos, are unacceptable: “Betsy DeVos is the opposite of what we need at the head of the department of education. We do not need to privatize our public school system, we do not need to turn it to a voucher system, and we certainly do not need a drastic influx in preferential charter school system. Our public school system is dying, and less funding will not solve the issue. We need a dynamic and progressive movement to revolutionize how we fund our schools and perpetuate the best solutions for our children’s education.”
