Lieberman Slated To Introduce Trump’s Controversial Pick For Education Secretary

Key Points: The DeVos, school, education, famous, and funded

The Washington Examiner first reported Monday that Lieberman, who was Al Gore’s presidential running mate in 2000, was slated to introduce DeVos at her hearing on Tuesday.

Education historian Diane Ravitch recently wrote that DeVos has “shown a special passion for privatizing public education,” funding measures in Michigan that would siphon off public school money redirecting it to private schools.

The former independent senator sits on the board of an education group funded by Betsy DeVos, Trump’s anti-union education nominee.
