It’s hard to tell if @BetsyDeVos is leading the Department of Education or the NRA.— Rep. Dan Kildee (@RepDanKildee) August 23, 2018
This idea is appalling and incredibly dangerous.
How is it we can't fund smaller class sizes for our children, yet the Trump Administration can find millions to appease the gun lobby? https://t.co/E2VQQWO9eh
Many schools can barely afford nurses or counselors for students – and teachers dip into their own pockets for basic supplies. Now @BetsyDeVosED wants to allow schools to use limited federal education $ to put guns – GUNS – in classrooms? That's the dumbest idea I've ever heard. https://t.co/b79CP4xZIe— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) August 23, 2018
Betsy DeVos has a brilliant idea. While paltry school budgets deny kids a decent education, she may let states use federal funds to buy guns for educators—not books, computers or pay raises. Guns. Meanwhile the Trump administration opposes all commonsense gun safety legislation.— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) August 23, 2018
Betsy DeVos' proposal to use federal funds to put more guns in our schools is a terrible idea. Let's pass reasonable gun safety reforms to keep our kids safe – and give teachers the tools they need to do the job they already have: educating our students.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) August 23, 2018
