Educating Our Children is the Most Effective Way We Can KEEP America Great

This is from Betsy Fox Vance

Hi all,

Being in education for 31 years, I know how vitally important it is that Betsy DeVos not be confirmed as Sec of Education. This is a billionaire who has NEVER had any experience with public schools, nor has she had any experience running any large entity. She is totally ill-equipped to have any part in our educational system. These youth are the future of our country. If you agree, please give this a look and see what you can do.

The vote to confirm Betsy DeVos as Sec of Education was delayed due to outpouring of resistance.
The hearing will now be held at 10 a.m. Jan. 31 so that Republicans have more time to garner votes.
So it's time for us to act now. Please call one of the following Republican Senators (key in the confirmation vote) to express your opposition to the appointment. At least 3 of these senators need to be convinced in order to block DeVos' nomination. Don't email. Don't tweet. Please call them! If you work in education, let that be known. PLEASE SHARE WIDELY:
