Betsy DeVos, President Trump's nominee for Secretary of Education, may have plagiarized answers to a Senate questionnaire without attribution, The Washington Post reports.
DeVos sent her answers on Monday. At one point she wrote, "Every child deserves to attend school in a safe, supportive environment where they can learn, thrive, and grow."
Every child deserves to attend school in a safe, supportive environment that allows them to thrive and grow.
Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department's civil rights division under President Obama, wrote something very similar last May.
When asked about whether transgender students should be able to use bathrooms that match their gender identity, DeVos said, "Every student deserves to attend school in a safe, supportive environment where they can learn, achieve and thrive and are not discriminated against."
From ASCD: "You as an educator and an ally can dramatically shift the school climate to one that is safe, supportive, and inclusive: a place where all students can learn, achieve, and thrive.”
