U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has declined an invitation to address the Education Writers Association at its upcoming national conference in Washington.

After being told the invitation to the May 31-June 2 event was being considered, EWA was later told "that the secretary was not able to make it work for the schedule."

As the nonpartisan professional organization for journalists pointed out, the education secretaries from every presidential administration going back to the creation of the U.S. Department of Education under President Jimmy Carter has addressed the group, though not every year.
