It was so disheartening to see that a person who clearly showed a lack of experience and knowledge about education was approved to lead the Department of Education. Did the Senators who voted for DeVos attend the confirmation hearings? It was clear as day. This decision gives voters no confidence that our representatives are actually looking out for the best interests of our children. What it proves, as we all suspected, is that if you have a lot of money and you donate to politicians -- then you can buy a Cabinet post. This vote hurts education. It hurts children. And it ultimately hurts democracy. We need leadership willing to stand up for what's right for the people they serve.
