DELLTA Letter to Secretary DeVos on Scrapping OELA (Office of English Language Acquisition)

DELLTA crafted this letter and mailed to Secretary DeVos in response to the scrapping of OELA. Thank you DELLTA's Advisory Council for uniting against this development. You can also read other organizations' letter to Secretary DeVos opposing this effort here. We attached their letter to our correspondence to Secretary DeVos. This article poses some thought-provoking questions on OELA's scraping.

Finally, we received this response from Secretary DeVos' Office "This acknowledgement is sent on behalf of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.Dear Dr. McFann-Mora:Thank you for your e-mail to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. We appreciate hearing from you. Your letter has been forwarded to the appropriate staff member for review and further handling.Thank you again for contacting us.
