The Senate will be holding confirmation hearings for Betsy DeVos on January 17th. If you care about America’s public schools, if you think all of our kids should have a solid education, and if you want to prevent religious indoctrination from being subsidized by the federal government, now is the time to call your senator and make your voice heard.
Look up the number here. All you’ll need is one simple sentence:
I’m calling to ask [Senator’s name] to block Betsy DeVos from the position of education secretary.
That’s it. That’s all you have to say. Easy-peasy.
If you want to include a little bit about why you oppose her, you can let them know the following:
[She’s] a conservative Christian billionaire who also loves charter schools and vouchers for private (including religious) schools. She pours money and support into anti-evolution Christian schools and organizations like Grove City College and the Willow Creek Association. Betsy DeVos has been a disaster for education in Michigan. Now, she’s being given the chance to push that failure of an agenda nationwide.
If we truly want America to be great, we need to support robust education for all its citizens. Betsy Devos will not help our public schools: she will destroy them. Act now to stop her.
