U.S. Senator David Perdue issued a statement today in support of the nomination of Besty DeVos for Secretary of Education. It would be an understatement to say that DeVos has one of the most difficult paths to securing a position in President Trump’s administration.
“Both of my parents were school teachers and education is something very dear to me. Parents, teachers, administrators, and students all know that one-size-fits-all Washington education standards are not working and it is time to return control back to states and communities. Betsy DeVos shares these same beliefs. She has championed school choice and, as evidenced by her years of involvement, will work tirelessly to improve our education system. I look forward to supporting Betsy DeVos’ nomination and working with her to help all students succeed.”
