Washington, D.C.—Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement on Betsy DeVos, President Donald Trump’s nominee for Education Secretary.

“Betsy DeVos is a billionaire with no experience in public education. She didn’t go to public school, didn’t send her children to public school, and wants to rob the public schools in District One of their few existing resources. She has been accused of plagiarizing speeches in her confirmation hearings and has provided Americans with no evidence that she’s prepared to do the job as Education Secretary. District One students are among the 205,000 Southern Nevada children who qualify for free or reduced lunch. They are the ones who will be left further and further behind if she is confirmed.”
