Sen. Collins: Vote No on Betsy DeVos

This petition had 506 supporters

Senator Collins,

Betsy DeVos is dramatically unqualified to be Secretary of Education, and is a danger to our public schools. We are writing to demand that you vote against her confirmation.

The case against Ms. DeVos is clear. She has no experience as a teacher. She has no experience as a public school student or parent. She has no experience working as an administrator in a public education. In other words, she has no firsthand experience with public education. All she has is money.

Indeed, she is relying entirely on her personal wealth to buy the job. This is unacceptable under regular circumstances, but is especially so at a moment when conservative politicians are making clear their intention to clean up Washington politics.

To vote in favor of her confirmation would be an egregious act hypocrisy, and a violation of your duty to protect the welfare and best interests of our children. Vote "no" on Betsy DeVos. We'll be watching.

With respect and gratitude for your continuing service,

The Undersigned
