    > Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) grilled secretary of education nominee Betsy DeVos on Tuesday, making the billionaire philanthropist’s lack of experience painfully obvious.
    >
    > DeVos’ controversial nomination has been met with opposition from Democrats and education activists who argue that her role leading the nation’s education policy could be a threat to civil rights . She’s been a longtime advocate of school choice and has donated millions to conservative politicians and causes, including programs that fight against marriage equality and LGBTQ rights.
    > During DeVos’ hearing before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, Warren took aim at the billionaire’s lack of experience with student loans, Pell Grants and public education.
    >
    > “Tonight at her confirmation hearing, I asked Betsy DeVos a straight forward set of questions about her education experience and commitment to protecting students cheated by for-profit colleges,” Warren said in a message posted to her Facebook page. “If Betsy DeVos can’t commit to using the Department of Education’s many tools and resources to protect students from fraud, I don’t see how she can be the Secretary of Education.”
