Your Call: Public Education in the DeVos & Trump era

US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos

What will the next four years look like for public education? Betsy DeVos, the new Secretary of Education, has spent years successfully working to privatize education in Michigan, and Donald Trump's budget calls for $9 billion in cuts to the Department of Education.
