(Lansing) – Gary G. Naeyaert, Executive Director of the Great Lakes Education Project (GLEP) released the following statement today after the United States Senate voted 51-50 to confirm Mrs. Betsy DeVos as the 11th U.S.  Secretary of Education. 

“This is a great day for students and families in all 50 states.  For decades Mrs. DeVos has been a passionate advocate for choice, quality and accountability in education.
