In Grand Rapids, Michigan, Calvin College is a highly rated, Protestant denominational college that counts among its alumni Betsy DeVos, the current nominee to the post of Secretary of Education. Her alumni status of that institution makes the fact that almost 3,000 students and alumni of Calvin have signed a letter (twenty-two of the twenty-three pages of the letter are a list of the signatories to it) opposing her appointment particularly remarkable. This callow heiress would be a disaster for public education in the United States.
Mercedes Schneider reposts a press release announcing that more than 2,750 students and alumni of Calvin College–Betsy DeVos’s alma mater–have signed a letter opposing her nomination as Secretary of Education.
The letter gives the reasons and lists the names.
