The American Federation for Children issued the following statement upon the nomination of Betsy DeVos as the nation’s 11th U.S. Secretary of Education. Most recently, DeVos has served the chairman of the American Federation for Children, the nation’s voice for educational choice.
John F. Kirtley, vice chairman of the American Federation for Children said:
“We applaud President-elect Donald Trump for choosing and placing his trust in Betsy DeVos to serve as the next U.S. Secretary of Education. For more than 20 years, Betsy has fought relentlessly for the right of every child – especially disadvantaged children – to receive a quality education of their parents’ choice. We are confident Betsy will take the same passion, commitment and leadership she’s shown in the school choice movement to the helm of the U.S. Department of Education.”
