Eugene School Board member, Eileen Nittler, and Mary Leighton, candidate for Position 3 of the board, will talk about aspects of public education that may be in peril under Secretary DeVos.

During her confirmation hearings, DeVos, a proponent of vouchers for attendance in private schools, demonstrated no knowledge of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and other glaring shortcomings. What does this mean for our schools and what can we do to counter this movement?
