Tea Party Patriots Congratulates Betsy DeVos on her Confirmation as Secretary of Education


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to Betsy DeVos’ confirmation as Secretary of Education.

“Tea Party Patriots and our network of grassroots activists across the country congratulate Betsy DeVos on being confirmed as Secretary of Education. Secretary DeVos has the opportunity to be a transformative Secretary of Education because she believes in a free-market approach to education and fully supports school choice options. By nominating Betsy DeVos, President Trump put teachers’ unions on notice that his administration will prioritize the education of American children over the union agenda. We look forward to working with Secretary DeVos to bring the power of the free market to our education system and finally give families choice and freedom when it comes to the education of their children.”
