Ruderman Family Foundation Statement On DeVos

The Ruderman Family Foundation
The Ruderman Family Foundation

The Ruderman Family Foundation remains concerned about Betsy DeVos’s confirmation as United States Secretary of Education. Mrs. DeVos’ responses at her Senate confirmation hearing in December demonstrated an unfamiliarity with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)—a federal law that guarantees access to free and appropriate public education for students with disabilities. Now that Mrs. DeVos is confirmed as Secretary of Education, it is crucial for her role to be not only aware of IDEA and its stipulations, but to fully embrace the right of students with disabilities to be included in public education. This is why the Ruderman Family Foundation hereby offers to facilitate a meeting between Mrs. DeVos and a group of leading education experts so that she may be better informed and better prepared for her role as Education Secretary.
