Federal Flash: 6/9/17: U.S. Senators Slam Trump’s Education Budget During DeVos Testimony


James Comey’s testimony was must-see viewing yesterday, but Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s appearance before a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee earlier this week gave new meaning to the term, “hold the mayo.”

Today’s Federal Flash explains why. It also examines continued efforts to staff up the Education Department and how a failure to fill key vacancies could impacts the agency’s ability to carry out its core mission.

“Federal Flash” is the Alliance for Excellent Education’s five-minute (or less!) video series on important developments in education policy in Washington, DC. For an alert when the next episode of Federal Flash is available, email
