Representatives Respond to DeVos Confirmation

Local Representatives respond to DeVos confirmation. Rep Huizenga congratulated Devos, saying, “Betsy will work tirelessly and fight to ensure that every child in America, no matter their zip code, has access to a quality education.”

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said, “Secretary DeVos will be an excellent Secretary of Education, fixing our schools and at the same time providing children and families choices to find the school that fits their needs.”

Debbie Stabenow feels differently, saying, “I’ve heard from an overwhelming number of Michigan families who have shared their strong concerns about her long record of pushing policies that have seriously undermined public education in Michigan and failed our children. That is why I joined with half of my Senate colleagues, including two Republicans, to oppose her nomination.”

Senator Gary Peters also said,  “I voted no on Devos because our students need an experienced champion to lead our public schools. I will keep fighting for Michigan students and families, who deserve strong neighborhood public schools.”
