Home » FREE SPEECH IN SCHOOLS & COLLEGES IS BACK! Sec. of Education Betsy DeVos


LISTEN NOW! Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM! These are exciting days that are happening within the Department of Education. When Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, was recently interviewed at the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference, she was asked about what new developments are taking place in our education department under the Trump Administration. In today’s culture, the atmosphere on many of our schools and college campuses can be quite harmful for those who desire to share their beliefs.  Secretary DeVos was pointedly asked about this important matter of freedom of expression within our schools, “particularly conservatives having their freedom of expression curtailed”.

As Secretary DeVos shares, she agrees with the urgency to resolve this matter. “We have seen more and more examples on college campuses, in recent years of shutting down free, and open expression, and debate around ideas.” For those who have not attended college, hoping to experience an atmosphere that encourages freedom of thought, may be surprised at what they experience if they do experience college as a student.
As Secretary DeVos explains, college education today is much different from when she experienced the college experience. “It is and should be a place where we explore other opinions and ideas. And yet, today, it has become more and more a place…where that possibility is more and more controlled.” Secretary DeVos further points out how the First Amendment being upheld on our college campuses is vital.
Can you imagine having the First Amendment carried out freely once again? It is coming back once again! What are your thoughts on Secretary DeVos’s leadership in our schools? We want to hear from you. See the full interview with Secretary DeVos, and so much more.
