Michigan sues Betsy DeVos over COVID-19 relief money for private schools

Source: Detroit Free Press

Michigan will join four other states in a lawsuit against U.S Education Secretary Betsy DeVos over how to distribute pandemic relief money to schools.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel announced the suit Tuesday, saying that a rule issued by DeVos would divert to private schools money that Congress provided to help public schools.

"Michigan kids cannot afford for Betsy DeVos to be playing politics with their education," Nessel said, adding that DeVos's guidance was part of her "longtime M.O., to siphon away funds from public schools to private schools."

Nessel said the states that are with Michigan in the suit, California, Maine, New Mexico, and Wisconsin, as well as the District of Columbia, would ask a court in northern California to issue an injunction to prevent the Department of Education from enforcing DeVos's rule.
