Democrats' leader on education preps for new role as check on Betsy DeVos


November 9, 2018

The Democrat poised to chair the House Education Committee said Wednesday that he will use his power to compel answers from Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and her staff, and will seek common ground with Republicans on addressing soaring college costs.

But with Democrats winning control of the House of Representatives on Tuesday, don’t expect high-profile confrontations from Rep. Robert C. “Bobby” Scott of Virginia, who won his 14th term representing a Hampton Roads district. And don’t expect him to champion the sort of expansive debt-free or tuition-free college proposals that have captivated many from the party’s liberal wing.
