Albany's BOE Comes Out in Opposition of Education Secretary Nominee Betsy DeVos

Albany's Board of Education has come out in opposition of education secretary nominee Betsy DeVos.

The board says she's not fit for the position, passing a resolution Monday night outlining their reasons.

They join many other school districts in the state which have passed similar resolutions.

Critics say DeVos is a wealthy Republican donor and accuse her of buying politicians.

She's also a known charter school advocate and proponent of expanding school choice programs, and has no public school experience which has prompted pushback from teachers unions.
