WASHINGTON DC, September 27, 2022 ~ Betsy DeVos spoke on Capitol Hill against the state of the education system, stating COVID-fueled school closings and “woke” teachers have given Republicans a “window of opportunity” to help parents gain control of their children’s education.

The former Secretary of Education and Michigan native encouraged the GOP to vote on school choice legislation on the grounds that parents are “mad as hell” at teachers’ unions for holding children “hostage,” all while overseeing the “rise of critical race theory” and “radical gender theory” in curriculums nationwide.

I don’t think the Democrats are going to support anything that differs with the Biden Administration,” said Congressman John Moolenar to 760 WJR’s Tom Jordan and Kevin Dietz.


September 27, 2022 ~ Congressman John Moolenaar talks with Kevin and Tom about Betsy DeVos‘ recent comments on school of choice.

The Democrats are going to go along with the radical ideas the Biden Administration is pushing, and that is where the voters are going to have to speak out in November and say ‘This is the wrong direction for our children’s education, let’s bring accountability, transparency and the values that parents support,’ they shouldn’t be undermined when their children go to school.”

Teachers’ unions and Democratic supporters are under fire since news dropped in September regarding the negative effects school closures had on overall student academic performance.
