Thank you, Senators Kaine and Warner, for voting against the confirmation of Betsy DeVos. I am horrified that so many other senators sold out the education of our youth. The public school system, although far from perfect, was one of the greatest attributes of our nation. Many of our successful leaders, doctors, teachers, lawyers, etc. are proud products of this system. As an educator with seven years of experience in the American public school system, I am deeply troubled by the direction DeVos wants to go. I hope that you continue to stand up for the children of our commonwealth and our nation.
