The confirmation of Betsy DeVos is a travesty and makes a mockery of the department of education. Shame on the senators of Idaho for not standing up for the children of Idaho. This cabinet position was bought and paid for by political donations from a billionaire donor, who admitted herself that she has no experience in education. I do not know of a single educator - and I know many - who supported this candidate. Please do the jobs you were sent by the people of Idaho to do and stand up for what's right. We have one of the worst records in education amongst all states and we are tired of lip service being paid to the importance of education while our local legislators do nothing. It's time to stop playing partisan politics - you are endangering our children's futures!
