ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Public Education Secretary Hanna Skandera says Donald Trump's choice for education secretary is a strong advocate for children and will help the nation's most Hispanic state.

Skandera told The Associated Press on Tuesday that she didn't know Betsy DeVos very well but believes her policies won't change New Mexico's overall educational reforms.

Trump named DeVos - a wealthy Republican donor and an advocate for school vouchers - his choice for U.S. Secretary of Education last week.

Skandera, a Republican, says she has not been offered nor has she accepted any U.S. Department of Education position in the Trump administration.
