The Republicans should have been ashamed of this vote. DeVos money bought their votes. She has no qualifications for the position and aims to replace public schools with charters (publicly funded private schools including the for-profit chains) and vouchers, which are unconstitutional. Public money should not be used for religious schools. I am a recently retired career educator, a former FT high school teacher and a FT college teacher/school leader educator. This vote was a disgrace--a tone-deaf political move. I praise the Democratic senators, including NJ's own Booker and Menendez. I have special praise for Senators Collins and Murkowski for having the courage to vote against the political pack.
