Readout of Secretary DeVos at Close Up Washington

March 27, 2018

Today, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos attended Close Up Washington, a non-partisan, non-profit civic education organization that promotes active citizenship to middle and high school students. The Secretary spoke about her path to public life and her three decades of advocating for better options for students. She took questions from an audience of about 300 high school students and 40 teachers during the event. Anna McMullen, Partnerships Manager at Close Up Foundation, moderated the Q&A while students asked about school choice, school safety, curriculum and mental health.
