Last week, the US Senate confirmed Betsy DeVos as the new head of the Department of Education. DeVos, who has no experience in public education, is a wealthy Republican donor and proponent of vouchers and charter schools.

Public schools and the rights of teachers have been under attack under the past two presidents, and DeVos is surely to continue that trend.
