The President of the National Education Association, Lilly Eskelsen-Garia, says President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, is the wrong person for the post.
Eskelsen-Garia, a guest on WNPV’s AM Edition Monday, says DeVos doesn’t even know what children need to be properly educated.
“I’ve never seen someone who didn’t seem to understand that kids have a Federal right to something like special education services. We’re looking at someone who is the most dangerously unqualified person that could have possibly been picked.”
Eskelsen-Garcia adds that DeVos advocates putting public funds in the hands of private companies to run the education system.
