Last night, Senate Democrats held an all night “talkathon.” It was a lame attempt to persuade another Republican to join them in protest against Betsy DeVos and her “radical” views. Sen. Tim Scott actually spoke, but not against DeVos. He actually told his colleagues why he was supporting her.
“I believe she will help to improve public education,” Scott said. “For too many of our children a quality public education … is simply not happening.”
The teachers unions hate DeVos because she wants to promote school choice. They don’t want to surrender any kind of control. They don’t actually care about education. It’s about power, control and money.
Despite the Democrats’ protest, the Senate just voted. Vice President Mike Pence broke the tie, officially confirming DeVos as Secretary of Education.
