Betsy DeVos was appointed as the new secretary of Education. The decision was hard for the Senate.  She got 50 – 50 vote so the Vice President, Mike Pence, made the tie braking vote for approval.  She is a member of the Republican party known for her advocacy of school choice, school voucher programs, charter schools.  She has never been in a public school and neither have her children.

I don’t think  that having a person who never has been in a public school is a good idea because she wouldn’t know what schools need or how much help the schools need. The political parties of the U.S  have different opinions in Education.  It seems the Republicans support private education options while the Democrats support public education of all.

The Republican party

“We support options for learning, including home-schooling, career and technical education, private or parochial schools, magnet schools, charter schools, online learning, and early-college high schools. We especially support… education savings account (ESAs), vouchers, and tuition tax credits.”

Democrat party

“We believe that a strong public education system is an anchor of our democracy, a propeller of the economy, and the vehicle through which we help all children achieve their dreams… We also support increased investments in afterschool and summer learning programs.”

    In my personal opinion I also believe in a strong public education. Public schools need more help to strengthen the education system and be more efficient for students.Such as provide supplies that will be useful to teach students better and fixes on building structured.
