DeVos calls for schools to offer in-person, supports bill co-sponsored by TN senator

Department of Education Secretary Betsy Devos has issued a letter to the public stating “schools must be open for in-person learning” as an option for parents.

Devos, nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the Senate in 2017, expressed her support and the support of the President for a bill which would provide scholarships to families that want to attend a school other than their assigned public school.

Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) has sponsored the School Choice Now Act, a bill which would provide the scholarships to families who decide to choose a school other than the one assigned to them. The bill is co-sponsored by Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander.
