Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement after meeting with the nominee for Department of Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos:

"After meeting with Betsy DeVos, I'm confident she'll work hard to put a quality education within reach of every child in Arkansas and America. She has a long record of championing better public schools and parental choice, especially for the disadvantaged. She's rightly skeptical of any attempt by Washington to impose social-engineering fads on Arkansas's parents and teachers. And she fully appreciates the challenge of reforming the Department of Education. As the son of a middle-school principal and teacher, I look forward to supporting her nomination."
