Education Secretary Betsy DeVos And The Future Of American Classrooms

Feb 17, 2017

Billionaire Betsy DeVos is the new Secretary for the US Department of Education.

This hour, how will she impact public school education nationwide including here in Connecticut? We hear from educators within traditional public and charter schools — and we want to hear from you, too.

Plus, a new investigation by Connecticut’s Child Advocate finds that Hartford Public Schools has failed to adequately respond to allegations of suspected abuse against school staff. We talk with Child Advocate Sarah Eagan and hear from Hartford’s Acting Superintendent of Schools.

Besides Hartford, how do other school districts in the state respond to allegations of abuse?
