Betsy DeVos warns teachers unions: 'I'm not going anywhere. In fact I'm just getting started.'

During a speech in Nashville on Thursday, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos called for education reform groups to continue the fight for school choice and said rumors of her departure are false.

Her lunchtime speech at the ExcelinEd conference included a heavy focus on the benefits of school choice for students and national tax reform efforts.

She also issued a warning to teachers unions and “defenders of the status quo” that she is just getting settled into her post as President Donald Trump’s education secretary.

“Allow me to borrow a line from the great American author Mark Twain, ‘The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.’ "

“I’m not going anywhere. In fact I’m just getting started.”
