Betsy DeVos Terrible Choice for America’s Teachers, Students

LANSING – Michigan AFL-CIO President Ron Bieber issued the following statement today commenting on President-Elect Donald Trump’s selection of Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary:

“It’s hard to imagine a worse choice to lead the U.S. Department of Education. Betsy DeVos has spent millions of dollars working to dismantle and destroy public education in Michigan and across the country. By selecting a fellow billionaire who has been so openly hostile to hardworking teachers and public school employees, this should send a strong message to every parent in America that Donald Trump isn’t on the side of working families, and has no interest in improving education for America’s students.”
