Block the Appointment of Betsy Devos

The Issue

Betsy DeVos is President Trump’s pick for Secretary of Education. She is unbelievably unqualified, and her conflicts of interest are a hot mess.

Why You Should Care

As Secretary of Education, DeVos will head up the U.S. Department of Education. She’ll be making major calls on primary education, student loans, and more. Her hearing (a gov version of a job interview) was a complete dumpster fire. She revealed she’s never attended or taught at a public school (probably because she’s a billionaire), and conflated proficiency and growth, which might not seem like a huge deal until you realize that this would literally be her job (you had one job Betsy!). She also has a shit ton of conflicts of interest. But wait! It gets worse — when asked about guns in schools, she suggested schools would need them to protect against grizzly bears. Not making this up.

What You Can Do About It

The Senate has to vote on January 31st to confirm Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. Contact your senators using the script below, and ask them to vote “no” on Betsy DeVos.

Twitter Script

@[Senator’s Twitter Handle] I am a resident & voter in [place you are registered to vote in] & I urge you to block Betsy DeVos’ appointment. #BlockDeVos #FloodtheGov

Facebook Script

As a resident and voter in [place you are registered to vote in], I urge you to block Betsy DeVos’ appointment. Her absence of experience in public schools, support of vouchers, and clear conflicts of interest make her unfit to serve as Secretary of Education. I, along with many of your constituents, will be watching how you vote very closely.
