Alert: Oppose Betsy DeVos' nomination for U.S. Secretary of Education. Call Senators Casey and Toomey today.
Sen. Bob Casey: 202-224-6324
Sen. Pat Toomey: 202-224-4254
Sample phone script:
Hello, my name is ____________________ and I am a teacher/bus driver/secretary/retiree in the ______________ School District in Pennsylvania.
I am calling to ask the senator oppose the nomination of Betsy DeVos for secretary of education.
I believe in my community’s public schools. Betsy DeVos believes in school privatization and vouchers. She supports initiatives that divert funding from public schools. And she has no experience with public schools and public education. Her lack of understanding of public education combined with her hostility towards public schools disqualifies her from running the U.S. Department of Education.
I am asking the senator to vote against the confirmation of Betsy DeVos.
