“NPE Action is proud to endorse Ellen Lipton, a candidate for Congress from the State of Michigan. Ellen has a background rooted in education advocacy and public service.

There is no doubt that Ellen Lipton’s combination of fearless activism and legislative know-how is needed in Washington, DC to lead the battle against Betsy DeVos’s privatization agenda.”
