Block Betsy DeVos!

Tell The Senate To Block Betsy DeVos Now!

Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is strongly supportive of public education. Unfortunately, the Trump/Pence regime is not. Their pick to run the Department of Education, Betsy DeVos is a committed enemy of education!

Tell the Senate education is too important to entrust to DeVos!

With everything else going on, especially the Trump/Pence illegal attacks on religious minorities, refugees, immigrants and the Constitution, we cannot lose sight of their other threats to our way of life. Betsy DeVos has committed herself to undermining public education as a private citizen. The damage she's poised to inflict nationally is nearly unimaginable!

Tell the Senate to block Betsy DeVos. She is not qualified to serve as Secretary of Education!

We need you to act now! Her confirmation hearings are scheduled, and she cannot be confirmed unless we sit back silently and let it happen. Would you be willing to contact the Senate now? Stand up and tell the Senate that DeVos is not qualified and not acceptable as Secretary of Education.

In solidarity,

Donna Smith for Mike H, Judy, Mike F, Deb, Dan, Teva, Kim, Janis, and Amos
Your Progressive Democrats of America National Team

    Education is not a commodity to be bought and sold, as Betsy DeVos has advocated for years. In her world only the rich will be educated. The rest will be slaves. She must not be confirmed.

    DeVos IS NOT qualified to become our Nation’s Education Secretary. She does not have the experience, or Professional background/degree to have a positive impact and advocate for the appropriate regulation needed to keep our kids learning in a progressive, competitive way. She has no experience in public education, is not a curriculum or standards expert, nor is she an educator. Her advocacy of vouchers, and a privatized education system will only diminish standards within our country, leaving schools falling far below learning outcomes that would help our children develop into competitive adults.
