Aaaaaaaargh! I was hoping this wouldn’t happen. Of course Delaware Senators Carper and Coons voted yes…
Today, the US Senate voted to confirm John King as Secretary of Education by a vote of 49-40.
The only Democrat to vote no was New York Senator Gillibrand.
King was opposed by many New York parent groups because of his unwillingness to listen, his unyielding devotion to the Common Core, test-based teacher evaluation, high stakes testing for children, and the corporate reform agenda.
