At the rally, House Speaker Paul Ryan praised President Donald Trump's pick of DeVos, saying the about to have "a secretary of education who not only believes in school choice but who has been fighting for school choice for much of her adult life".

"With those issues, I just felt it was very important that, if we agreed to it, to make a statement in opposition of it", Anderson said.

I do believe that my senators will vote against her confirmation, but am concerned about her confirmation by the majority.

Mrs. DeVos testified that she opposes Washington, D.C., requiring states to adopt vouchers, unlike her critics who delight in a National School Board imposing their mandates on states, for example, Common Core academic standards.

The letter was posted on the student newspaper's Facebook page and received numerous comments, some of them supporting DeVos and others backing those who signed the letter. She may know a lot about her charter schools, and I applaud her involvement. The number of students in charter schools more than doubled under Obama and his education secretary, Arne Duncan. Additionally, DeVos has fought any attempt to pass state legislation that would have provided some government oversight of the schools.

Liberals liked Duncan's emphasis on early childhood education and equal opportunity for minority students but felt that he was sometimes too willing to blame teachers for failing schools. If ever there was an example of two polar opposites on education, it's Grover and DeVos.

She was also pressed by Sen.

"She is a very unsafe person to be running the state's education", he said.

McCarren said children that attend her private preschool are better prepared for higher grade levels.

Many speakers touched on the American ideal that anyone can rise above humble beginnings, aided by a good education and hard work.
