Defend public education

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

As members of the Senate Education Committee, work to block Donald Trump's nomination of wealthy non-educator Betsy DeVos as the next Secretary of Education.

Why is this important?

The privatization of public schools in Michigan has been disastrous for students, particularly for students of color and those with disabilities. DeVos helped block efforts to clean up the for-profit, unregulated charter school mess in her home state. Many students who currently receive a good public education will lose access to that opportunity under the system of vouchers and school choice that she advocates. Please put children before profits and stop this nomination.
