Today, President-Elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, will go before the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions for her confirmation hearing.
During the confirmation hearing DeVos will answer questions from Congressional representatives, both Republican and Democrat, with the intent of providing further insight into what she has planned for the future of the Department of Education.
In our recent blog post addressing the presidential transition, we touched on how DeVos will play a critical role in the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), school choice, Common Core and many other issues that will impact schools and districts across the country.
The hearing will be live streamed via:
Senate committee members will begin their questioning at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.
