'Save our schools:' Groups protest outside Betsy DeVos school visit

She told them all schools are important but her focus is on making sure everyone finds the right fit for them.

DeVos will also visit schools in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Wyoming this week.

In Indiana, DeVos will first visit 21st Century Charter School in Gary from 11:30 a.m.to 1:10 p.m. CT, then travel to Indianapolis to visit Hope Academy Recovery High School from 4:00 p.m.to 5:30 p.m. The Social Justice Senior Seminar (what other local school would fathom such a group?) chose to create an all-school booklet to give to DeVos.

"Dana and myself have met with different individuals, Students for Survivors, some other students and we sat down with some administrators to talk about it", said Emlemdi.

"Public education is all kids", he said. "And we have lots of students today that don't have that kind of opportunity and the power with their parents to make those decisions".

He said he believes it was the result of 2017 graduate Raven Osborne who earned her bachelor's degree from Purdue University Northwest a few weeks before she earned her high school diploma last spring. Yet, at the same time, Congress seems to have no plans to enact the stronger support for neighborhood public schools parents prefer.

A siege of cameras followed her every step inside Hope Academy in Indianapolis. She's visiting schools across the nation that are coming up with new ways to teach and inspire children.

Ms. DeVos will wrap up her tour of West and Midwest schools in IN on Friday.

In a statement, Indiana Democratic Party chair John Zody criticized DeVos' visit. Bobby ScottBobby ScottAir Force One is Trump's new boardroom Report: minimum wage bill would benefit 20.7 million workers in 21 states Republicans aim to kill off Obama franchise standard MORE (Va.) and 39 other members of Congress said revoking these agreements reflect "a fundamental misunderstanding" of the Education Department's authority and that of other federal agencies. The school is part of Indiana's private school voucher program.
