DeVos addresses school choice during Midland visit • Chemical City Paper | #Education


Former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos received a warm welcome from the Midland County G.O.P. at the Dave Camp Spring Breakfast on Monday. She acknowledged U.S. Rep. John Moolenaar, former U.S. Rep. Dave Camp, and former Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, who also spoke at the event.

A native of Holland, Ms. DeVos reflected on her tenure as Education Secretary.

“I’m sure it’s no surprise to you that my major focus as secretary was to light a prairie fire across America for education freedom: for school choice. For the should-be simple idea that education is about students, not systems, and that accordingly, education funding should be tied to students, not systems or buildings. That the sole goal of public education should be to educate the public,” Ms. DeVos said.
