Cox: DeVos Protecting All Michigan Students

The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox regarding today’s announcement by Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel that the state will be joining a lawsuit against U.S. Secretary of Education Betsey DeVos regarding the distribution of COVID-19 funds to schools. 

“While Secretary DeVos fights to ensure all schools can safely reopen, it’s sad to see that Dana Nessel and Gretchen Whitmer seek to intentionally leave thousands of Michigan children unprotected from a disease that does not care if a child attends a public or private school.”

“Politics has no place in the fight against COVID-19, so Whitmer and Nessel should stop bowing down to the whims of the teacher’s union bosses who fund their campaigns and stop using schoolchildren like pawns in their well-documented war on Secretary DeVos.
