NEW ORLEANS (AP) — U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is wrapping up a southern tour by visiting two public charter schools in New Orleans.

DeVos brought her "Rethink School" tour to New Orleans on Friday.

DeVos visited Edward Hynes Charter School to observe what it calls "academically rich, innovative programs."

Her schedule also included a stop at the New Orleans Military and Maritime Academy where she was scheduled to take part in a discussion and learn about the Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer's Training Corps.

U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana accompanied her.

DeVos started the tour in Atlanta on Wednesday and also visited Huntsville, Alabama. She visited Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and Lexington and Jackson, Mississippi, on Thursday.
