It's not difficult to find out exactly where Education Secretary Betsy DeVos comes from and what she believes. She and her family — one of the wealthiest families in Michigan — have donated millions of dollars to organizations that seek to expand religious education and push for taxpayer-funded vouchers for private schools, hurting public schools in the process.
