Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, an Opponent of Public Education and Unions, Kicking Off School Tour in Milwaukee September 16, 2019

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos will kick off her annual back to school tour Monday, September 16, 2019 in Milwaukee — home to the nation’s oldest private school voucher program built with the assistance of the right-wing Bradley Foundation. DeVos is planning a series of visits aimed at promoting legislation to privatize public education and with the intent to attack educator unions and to enrich Wall Street especially the banks.

DeVos will tour St. Marcus Lutheran School, 2215 N. Palmer St., where almost all of the 900 students attend on the taxpayer-funded Milwaukee Parental Choice Program, according to a news release issued Friday. It said she also will deliver keynote remarks and host a round table discussion.
