Oppose DeVos

Suggested message for Republican Senators except Collins and Murkowski:
Senator __________
______________ Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Senator _______________:

If you love your children and grandchildren, please examine your conscience and ask yourself whether you really think that a radical like Betsy DeVos will be good for (your state’s) parents and children if she is confirmed for the position of Secretary of Education. Then please consider changing your position and voting No on the appointment of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. Remember, as of now, one vote will be the difference.

Her lack of experience makes her completely unqualified for the position. She has never taught in, gone to or even sent her children to public schools. This is not the situation for most (your state’s) families who depend on adequately funded public schools to educate their children.

She describes herself as Jesus Christ’s agent to change public schools. Her advocacy for vouchers and unregulated for-profit charter schools has the potential to destroy the funding for the nation’s public school systems. Her policies have already wreaked havoc in Detroit’s public schools.

Again, if you want the future for (your state’s) schools to be bright and the future for (your state’s) children to be promising, please vote No on the appointment of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.

Also, if you received campaign contributions from DeVos or her family, please at least consider recusing yourself from the vote.

Thank you very much.
