February 7, 2017

WASHINGTON –Today, the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Betsy DeVos to serve as Secretary of Education. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement:

“Betsy DeVos has dedicated her life to improving education, so I am glad she will continue to fight for all children as Secretary of Education. Attempts by Senate Democrats to stall the President’s nominees only distract from the very real struggles of North Carolina’s families seeking the best education for their children.”
