U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos today congratulated Kenneth L. Marcus on being confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve as Assistant Secretary of Education for Civil Rights.

“We are excited and grateful to finally have Ken on our team.  His vast civil rights experience will be a great asset as we fulfill our mission to serve America’s students,” said Secretary DeVos. “In his many years of public service, Ken has shown himself to be a strong advocate for victims of intolerance and discrimination, and he will not back down when it comes to protecting the civil rights of all students.”

Mr. Marcus most recently served as President and General Counsel of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law. He was previously Staff Director of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and was delegated the authority of Assistant Secretary of Education for Civil Rights under President George W. Bush.
