I would like to thank Senator Jon Tester for opposing the nomination of Betsy DeVos for U.S. Secretary of Education. DeVos is unqualified beyond all conceivable measure, having no experience in public education and no knowledge of even how federal education laws affect students, as her testimony has shown. This is line with her career of undermining public education by channeling money to private charter schools, which have been shown by nonpartisan studies to be less effective than public schools. Sen. Tester, with his long personal experience with public education, knows that and we are grateful for his leadership.
