During a hearing of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) DeVos showed herself to be hopelessly out of her depth; she couldn’t explain the difference between proficiency and growth or that the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) was a federal law. She wouldn’t commit to keeping guns out of school campuses . HERE is her reasoning which tells you EVERYTHING you need to know ! She was questioned by Sen. Chris Murphy of Conn.(the Sandy Hook massacre occurred in Newtown) and she said that some schools might need guns to protect against grizzly bears.'FYI 'U.S. school shootings since 2013: 210. Grizzly bear attacks at American schools since 2013: 0. #DeVosHearing' She wouldn’t commit to holding charter and voucher schools to the same standards as traditional public schools. She wouldn’t commit to protecting students with special needs.
