DeVos Talks ESSA, Budget in Recent Public Appearances

April 16, 2019

“After weathering a political storm over the Trump administration’s proposed budget at the end of March, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos continued her run of public appearances into April,” writes Andrew Ujifusa for Education Week. “DeVos received widely varied reactions from state education leaders and from lawmakers on Capitol Hill on issues” ranging from arming teachers to testing to ESSA implementation. In each of these appearances, “DeVos stressed she is trying to help students and teachers who she said are ill-served by traditional education practices and systems.”
