Senate Democrats were loaded for bear when President Trump’s nominee for education secretary, Betsy DeVos, sat down for her confirmation hearing last week — yet one of them used to share DeVos’ central goal.
DeVos has spent her life advocating for children and for parental choice in education to ensure opportunity for all, regardless of race, class, gender or ZIP code.
Such dedication is irrelevant to defenders of our nation’s dysfunctional public-school systems. Yet at least one Senate Democrat wasn’t always a defender of dysfunction.
