Below is video from the recent confirmation hearing for Secretary of Education candidate Betsy DeVos, courtesy of C-SPAN. You can find this video on their website, along with a transcript of the 3-hour proceeding. I would recommend that any stakeholder in our education system (basically everyone) take the time to watch this hearing and develop their own reason- and evidence-based views on the answers provided.
If you have any comments regarding the candidacy of Ms. DeVos (be they positive, negative or otherwise), I encourage you to share those with your congressional representatives in the House and Senate. The members of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions can be found here. Our own Pat Roberts, is a member of this committee, he can be contacted from this webpage. You can also call Senator Roberts’ offices to share your comments with him using the phone numbers below.
