“Betsy DeVos has dedicated her life to helping improve educational opportunities for America’s kids. She will bring a much-needed dose of innovation and passion to the Department of Education. I am excited to work with Betsy DeVos to bring real reforms to America’s schools, and put control back in the hands of parents and local educators where it belongs.”
