The Senate has scheduled a vote today at noon to confirm President Trump's controversial nominee for Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos. Ms. DeVos, a billionaire and major donor to many of the very Senators who will vote to confirm her, is an outspoken advocate of privatizing public schools and instituting a voucher system. In fact, all of her children attended private school, if you can believe that. The current pre-vote tally has the Senate deadlocked in a 50-50 tie, in which case VP Pence would be called in to break the tie -- something that has NEVER happened for a President's Cabinet-level nominee. That ought to tell you something. Not going down quietly, Lakeville teachers decided to wear black today to protest DeVos's nomination. GO LAKEVILLE!
