Former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos left the department’s funding for low-income schools, protections for students with disabilities, and rights for survivors under Title IX in shambles.
In her farewell letter to Congress, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos called for the incoming administration's education policies to be blocked. But Michiganders are against her.
In a letter sent Monday, DeVos asked members of Congress to protect Trump administration education policies, which Biden has pledged to eliminate.
