ACSA's Response to Secretary of Education Confirmation
February 7, 2017
The following ACSA statement has been distributed to local and national media in response to the confirmation of Betsy DeVos to the position of United States Secretary of Education.
The Association of California School Administrators is troubled by the confirmation of Betsy DeVos to the position of United States Secretary of Education.
ACSA’s mission is to advocate for the rights of all students, protect public education, and provide universal accessibility to learning. We oppose any efforts to privatize public education, any effort to weaken protections for students with disabilities, any attempt to devalue diversity or silence our voices on equity and social justice.
ACSA remains committed to California’s 6.2 million students. We hope the secretary reaches out and leans on the expertise of educators who have been on the front lines of public education.
