NAACP Sues Betsy DeVos Over Federal Aid Money For Private Schools

The civil rights organization argues the Department of Education has directed states to unfairly divert relief funds from public to private schools.

The NAACP has become the latest organization to sue the Education Department over the distribution of more than $13 billion dollars in federal aid intended for K-12 schools.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos says if states want to use the funds to provide services for all students, such as tutoring or extra school buses to allow for social distancing, they must also fund "equitable services" for all private school students in the district.
