There are some people that were not as supportive of Betsy DeVos' visit to Van Wert.

Protesters were just outside of Van Wert Middle School, with signs stating their views on charter schools. The group made clear that they were against privatizing the educational system through charter schools, which DeVos has advocated for in the past.  The group says that they would rather continue to support the current system - they say people in the area are proud of their public schools.

"There's not a person in this county whether they live in Crestview local system, Lincolnview, Van Wert City Parkway, Wayne Trace; they love their schools, they're proud of them, they support their schools," said Al Arnold, one of the protesters.  "We don't need any of our money to be spent on other kinds of for-profit educational learning centers."

The protesters also worked to speak their beliefs peacefully.
