Group thanking supporters of the pro-school choice nominee
JEFFERSON CITY – Americans for Prosperity – Missouri is thanking Senator Roy Blunt for publicly backing Betsy Devos’ to lead the U.S. Department of Education. The grassroots organization supports Devos’ work to champion school choice and increase educational opportunities for all children.
AFP-MO State Director Jeremy Cady released the following statement.
“We appreciate Senator Blunt’s public support for confirming Betsy DeVos, a champion for school choice and commonsense reforms that increase education outcomes. Americans for Prosperity supports improving educational opportunity for all students – and that means we must do better than the status quo of one-size-fits-all education.
“Betsy DeVos’ record shows she would bring a focus on those priorities to the Department of Education, and should swiftly be confirmed as Education Secretary. We thank Senator Blunt for his commitment to support DeVos’ nomination and for taking bold action on behalf of our kids.”
Americans for Prosperity previously sent a letter to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) this week, asking that they give full and fair consideration to Betsy DeVos for the role of Secretary of Education. The organization said DeVos had been a champion of more choice for students and parents, and that her policies would be a better direction to take the Department of Education.
