Students and Educators Can’t Take Four More Years of Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump

This Administration has Been a Disaster for Public Education

As President Donald Trump’s secretary of education, Betsy DeVos has made it her mission to dismantle public education. She promotes the privatization of public schools through vouchers, continually calls for deep cuts to federal funding, rolls back protections for vulnerable children, and completely disregards their safety and the safety of educators during a global pandemic.

Scroll through this timeline to see what Betsy DeVos has done as education secretary. Each moment shows how she’s been a disastrous choice, just as educators and public education advocates knew she would be.

“I live down the street from Betsy DeVos”

Cathy Boote spent her 37-year teaching career teaching middle school students in Holland, Michigan. That also happens to be the hometown of Betsy DeVos, and that’s not all the two have in common.
