While some of Donald Trump’s appointments so far have been celebrated by his supporters, the president-elect's nominee for U.S. education secretary, Betsy DeVos, has raised serious concerns, even among Trump’s most loyal backers. From concerns about her involvement with pro-Common Core organizations, to growing doubts about whether President-elect Trump's administration intends to follow through on pursuing candidate Trump's call for shutting down the unconstitutional U.S. Department of Education, the controversy has only grown in recent days.
