Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos will make an appearance in Colorado Springs later this month in support of Parents Challenge -- an organization promoting school choice. She has a close personal relationship with the organization's founder. Furthermore, there's deep uncertainty about what the ultimate outcome of a voucher system in the U.S. would be.
In a Facebook post this week, State Sen. Owen Hill (R-Colorado Springs) wrote that he’d talked with Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos about her “being the last secretary of education.”
Many Colorado Republicans welcomed Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to Denver with open arms earlier this month.
Hundreds gathered at the state Capitol Wednesday to protest Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’ arrival in Denver for the annual meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
In the protest-filled weeks since Donald Trump’s inauguration, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has received a heavy dose of pushback from his blue-state constituents, perhaps due to his record of standing with our new president 100% of the time.
