Washington, D.C. — U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released the following statement on the passing of former First Lady Barbara Bush:

"Barbara Bush was a woman of grace, wit, perseverance and character. She committed the entirety of her life to serving others: her family, her friends and her nation.
