Senator David Perdue Statement On Betsy DeVos

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement in support of President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos:

“Both of my parents were school teachers and education is something very dear to me. Parents, teachers, administrators, and students all know that one-size-fits-all Washington education standards are not working and it is time to return control back to states and communities. Betsy DeVos shares these same beliefs. She has championed school choice and, as evidenced by her years of involvement, will work tirelessly to improve our education system. I look forward to supporting Betsy DeVos’ nomination and working with her to help all students succeed.”

The Senate is scheduled to vote on Betsy DeVos’ nomination next week.
