Encourage Senator Moran to VOTE NO on Betsy Devos. Here's why...
- As other Republican Senators have noted, Betsy DeVos would be bad for rural school districts diverting already scarce funding and increasing inequity.
- DeVos’s history of promoting for-profit charters has been a failure in Michigan and would impact rural districts deeply.
- DeVos is uniquely UNQUALIFIED having never attended or served in public schools as an educator.
- Kansas needs to restore funding equity and adequacy and keep its tradition of strong public schools as the backbone of the Kansas future.
- DeVos doesn’t fully understand basic services provided by public schools like special education.
