Nearly 3,000 Calvin College Students and Alumni Oppose DeVos

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.
