Please vote against confirming DeVos. While I live in Madison, I have family in rural areas of Wisconsin where public schools are the only option for educating children. DeVos's policies would weaken public schools and have a detrimental impact in areas where no choice exists. Also, while I think the statements that she has no experience in education are exaggerated, I think the experience that she does have is not appropriate for this position. She has demonstrated a disconcerting lack of understanding of federal education governmental structures and very basic principles of education practice (e.g., absolute versus relative standards).
