Schools of choice, long argued by conservatives as the best way to improve failing efforts in education nationwide will now be front and center with today’s  confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education. DeVos from West Michigan has long been an opponent of teachers unions and a champion of giving parents a choice when it comes to picking a school for their children.

With the latest victory for Right to Work in Missouri and another battle coming soon in New Hampshire, the power of unions in America seems to be going out like the tide.

The DeVos confirmation might be the latest indication that the stranglehold unions once held in America and more notably in Michigan might be waning. We will be watching closely as DeVos takes over directing the nations schools and see if she is able to deliver some of her ideas of reform despite the inclination of those on the left to dismiss any new ideas out of hand.
