“Progress Michigan is calling on Attorney General Bill Schuette to investigate Betsy DeVos’ plan to have her foundation pay for a Michigan public school superintendent’s trip to Washington D.C. to testify on DeVos’ behalf and influencing her testimony. The DeVos family also paid $67,000 for a superintendent coach for the GRPS administrator.
According to Wood TV 8, Betsy DeVos’ foundation, the American Federation for Children, planned to provide Grand Rapids Public Schools Superintendent Teresa Weatherall Neal an all-expenses paid trip to D.C. to sing DeVos’ praises during her Senate confirmation hearing. The organization even included talking points and told her where to sit in the committee room. In addition, the DeVos family paid $67,000 for a superintendent’s coach to help Weatherall Neal when she began her position five years ago.”
