Obama's Education Secretary: Protestors Shouldn't Be Blocking DeVos From Public Schools

As Cortney reported, newly minted Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was violently blocked from entering a public school in Washington D.C. Friday by Black Lives Matter protestors. DeVos was set to give a speech and planned to meet with parents, students and teachers. 

Now former Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who served under President Obama, is coming to her defense.

A local Fox 5 reporter described the protestors as knocking into DeVos, getting into her face and nearly making her fall. They also attempted to block her vehicle upon departure. Her security team was described as overwhelmed by the incident.
