‘The Department Of Education Should Not Exist:’ Former DOE Secretary Betsy DeVos Says at M4L Summit
Former U.S. Department of Education (DOE) Secretary Betsy DeVos spoke during the Moms For Liberty National Summit in Tampa, Florida, on Saturday and called on abolishing the federal agency she once served.
“I personally think the Department of Education should not exist,” DeVos said during the summit, according to the Florida Phoenix.
The former education department head joined more than 20 speakers during the summit, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Dr. Ben Carson, and Dr. James Lindsay.
Tiffany Justice, a co-founder of the Moms For Liberty, said according to the Florida Phoenix, the organization “loves teachers” but called the teacher unions a “K-12 cartel” while advocating for the two groups to separate.
Tina Descovich, a co-founder of Moms For Liberty, called parental rights a nonpartisan issue.
