WATCH: Education Secretary Betsy DeVos faces questions over budget cuts

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is expected to appear before the Senate Appropriations subcommittee Thursday where she will likely face questions about proposed cuts to the Department of Education budget.

The department is planning $7 billion in reductions for fiscal year 2020.

DeVos came under scrutiny this week for one of the proposed cuts–federal funding for the Special Olympics. The Education Department gave the organization $17.6 million this year.
