A second-grade student wroteto Betsy DeVos to tell her that she loves her public school. She pleaded with DeVos,

“Please leave are [sic] public schools alone do not tear it down ever.”

Willa is a second grader. She is the daughter of a journalist, who posted Willa’s message on Instagram.

Do you think Betsy DeVos will get Willa’s card? Do you think DeVos will be moved by Willa’s message? Do you think she has ever seen a public school like Willa’s? DeVos seems to think that public schools are a dead end, a place where children are forced to go unwillingly. Maybe she should visit Willa’s school to understand why she loves it.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if one million school children wrote to DeVos and told her why they love their school?
