NEWS & TRENDS: Betsy DeVos Security Costs Tax Payers Millions

The round-the-clock security for Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is provided by US Marshals. It cost $5.3 million in 2017, $6.8 million in 2018, and is forecast at $7.74 million for 2019. A charter school advocate unfamiliar with public schools, DeVos has been among President Trump’s most controversial cabinet choices. When American public schools are chronically underfunded, it makes sense to question this expenditure.
