CABINET/EDUCATION/TRUMP PEOPLE/BETSY DEVOS: “What exactly would a federal school voucher program look like, and would it fund schools that discriminate against students based on their gender, religion, race or sexual orientation?
That question was a major flash point — once again — on Tuesday as senators in an appropriations subcommittee questioned U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) asked DeVos if any voucher program would follow anti-discrimination laws.
DeVos repeated, at least six times over the course of the hearing, that any school accepting federal money would have to follow federal law.
But some senators were dissatisfied with this answer.”
