The senate confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education was more contentious than any nominee in memory. Senators were divided over her qualifications and education philosophy, and Vice President Pence stepped in cast the deciding vote on Tuesday. The public focus on education and Ms. DeVos created a stir among Evangelicals as well. Dr. Andrea Ramirez, who leads the Faith and Education Coalition – NHCLC, was asked to comment on the state of public education and how faith communities can support high quality education. She published an article at ChristianityToday.com, entitled “Under DeVos, the Real School Choice Christians Face” which encouraged Christians to ask three questions in regard to their local public schools. Dr. Ramirez was also interviewed on the “Quick to Listen” podcast via Christianity Today: “What Will God Do with Betsy DeVos?”
