Betsy Devos is woefully inadequate to fill the position of Secretary of Education. When questioned about policy, by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, not only were her answers unsatisfactory, but she demonstrated a complete lack of understanding of the basic concepts of education.
As Oregonians, our senators, Wyden and Merkley, have committed to voting against her appointment. That is not true in all states.
We need three senators to change their votes to prevent DeVos from being confirmed.
If you know constituents in ME, TN, AK, GA, UT, NC, WY, LA, KS, SC, or KY please encourage them to call their senators. Also, anyone can call any US Senator.
The hearing of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions will be held at 10am January 31.
Don't email. Don't tweet. Call. Calling is the most effective method of communicating with senators.
