Secretary DeVos Continues Back to School Tour for a Second Day in Cleveland

Highlights schools that are rethinking education and preparing students for success

CLEVELAND—On day three of her 2019 Back-to-School tour, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos will spend a second day in Cleveland to visit E Prep & Village Prep Cliffs Campus and tour Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).

At Cliffs, the Secretary will learn more about the school’s innovative teaching methods including its two teacher model and adaptive computer-based instruction. Cliffs is part of the Breakthrough Schools Network which has been recognized as the highest-performing network of free, public charter schools in Cleveland.

Afterwards, the Secretary will head to Tri-C® Metropolitan Campus to tour the Manufacturing Technology Center floor. There she will observe students learning 3D printing and CNC Machining. Tri-C is focused on preparing students for in-demand, high-wage jobs and ensuring students have the skills they need for success upon graduation.

This is the third year Secretary DeVos has embarked on a Back-to-School Tour to highlight learning environments where local educators and elected leaders are rethinking education. This year’s tour focuses specifically on how the Secretary’s Education Freedom Scholarships proposal, introduced in both the House and Senate, will help supplement local efforts to rethink school and expand education options for students in states across the country.
