Washington's role in public education

Hosted by

Betsy DeVos, the billionaire nominee for Secretary of Education, wants vouchers, so parents can use public money for tuition at private schools. Democratic Senators question if that really helps poor and minority students — and they've challenged DeVos' experience and knowledge of law. We focus on public education — but that's just one of the issues being raised on Capitol Hill as Republicans schedule confirmation hearings simultaneously. Among the questions being raised are potential financial conflicts of interest for DeVos.
