Statement from Senate Education Committee Chairman Dolores Gresham regarding the confirmation of U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos

(NASHVILLE) — Betsy Devos is an undisputed champion of families and students. For nearly 30 years, she has devoted time and resources to improving education options for our nation’s children, yet millions still languish in failing schools in an education system more than a century old.

It’s time for a new vision.

Betsy DeVos provides that vision. She embraces innovation, endorses accountability and — most especially — trusts parents to choose what is in their unique child’s best interests. She also believes in providing every parent with the resources and choices to pursue those decisions.  I am very pleased she has been confirmed.
