Protesters block Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering public school

It was DeVos's first visit to a public school since being sworn-in this week. For me, the worst moment by far was her tone-deaf answer about grizzly bear defense when Sen.

However, Republicans privately told a reporter that Collins waited to announce her opposition to DeVos until Republicans knew they had the votes to secure DeVos's confirmation, according to Politico magazine.

The vote split along party lines, with U.S. Sens. "I'm just hopeful that she will do what's best for children, especially for the special-needs community".
