3 Things You Should Know about Trump Pick Betsy DeVos

From the Home School Legal Defense Association:

Some commentators have expressed concerns about a few of the organizations she is associated with. She is currently a member of the board of Great Lakes Education Project (GLEP), which supports the Common Core in Michigan. She is also on the board of Jeb Bush’s organization, Foundation for Excellence in Education (FEE), which led the push for the Common Core.

But does this mean that DeVos supports the Common Core? HSLDA doesn’t believe that is the case. We believe that Betsy DeVos’ powerful statement against the Common Core shows two things: her personal views on the subject, and the strength of the grassroots opposition to the Common Core.
