We must stop punishing the poor for being poor

With Trump's budget proposal back in February, DeVos proposed an over one billion dollar cut from public schools to feed into private schools.

As a public servant, it's her job to create a better education system for our children — all of our children.

Stand with our students: tell Betsy DeVos to protect our public schools!

A survey by the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities found that "most states provide less support per students than before the Great Recession." The more we cut from public schools, the greater the gap in reaching higher education for these kids becomes.

We the leaders are the voices of these students. DeVos must do her job and protect our public schools.
