Buckle Up, Betsy DeVos: House Democrats Take the Helm


November 15, 2018

As Democrats take control of the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time since 2010, they could usher in some big changes in how Washington approaches education and a lot more oversight of U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. But it won't necessarily mean huge changes in policy.

Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., is set to be the next chairman of the House education committee in the 116th Congress as a result of last week's midterm elections. He would replace Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., who's been the committee chairwoman for the past two years. In addition, Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., is on track to lead the House appropriations subcommittee that handles the budget for the U.S. Department of Education.
