EDITORIAL: Recognize Student Union’s changes to CEEF fund

Following the Student Union’s Friday release of its Community Emergency and Enhancement Fund grants for the year, this board would like to commend the CEEF committee on its foresight and its commitment to transparency, as demonstrated by their public announcement of the initiatives. When the CEEF originally replaced the Student Union’s Capital Expenditures fund in March 2014, the Union planned to spend an annual $200,000 of the $250,000, according to a March 1, 2014 Justice article on the subject.

EDITORIAL: Criticize the confirmation of Betsy DeVos

Last Tuesday, the Senate confirmed Betsy DeVos for education secretary by a 51-to-50 vote. Vice President Mike Pence cast the tiebreaking vote, marking the first time in history that the vice president acted as a tiebreaker for a cabinet nomination. This board urges the University and the Education Studies department to take note of DeVos’ confirmation and begin to devise ways to counteract the damage her tenure will have on elementary, middle, and high school students — inevitably members of future incoming classes at Brandeis.
