Statement from the Michigan AFL-CIO on Betsy DeVos confirmation vote

“This is a sad day for anyone who cares about public education in America,” said Ron Bieber, president of the Michigan AFL-CIO. “Betsy DeVos is the least qualified cabinet nominee in recent memory. She has spent her entire adult life using her family’s personal fortune to destroy public education as we know it. By confirming Betsy DeVos as the next Secretary of Education, Republicans have made it clear that they are not on the side of America’s students, parents, and educators.”
