CABINET/EDUCATION/BETSY DEVOS: “Betsy DeVos lacks basic knowledge of American schools and should not be confirmed as secretary of Education, Sen. Kamala Harris said Monday night as Democrats made a last-ditch effort to sink DeVos’ nomination…
After watching DeVos’ confirmation hearing, Harris said, ‘It was clear Ms. DeVos didn’t know the difference between two basic theories of testing.’ Harris was referring to DeVos’ inability to answer questions at her confirmation hearing about the difference between measuring student proficiency and student growth — two competing methods of evaluating how much students are learning.”
