Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will visit the Air Force Academy on Wednesday as part of her "Rethink School" tour, the department announced.

DeVos will visit the academy from 11:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. as part of a three-stop trip in Colorado and Nebraska. She will visit the Firefly Autism House in Denver Wednesday morning, then travel to the academy. Afterward, DeVos will head to Midland University in Omaha.

DeVos' "Rethink School" tour is designed to showcase "creative ways education leaders are meeting the needs of students in K-12 and higher education," according to a Department of Education press release. The tour began Tuesday and will last through Friday. Stops will be made in Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Indiana.

"There are so many new and exciting ways state-based education leaders and advocates are truly rethinking education," DeVos said in a release. "It is our goal with this tour to highlight what's working. We want to encourage local education leaders to continue to be creative, to empower parents with options and to expand student-centered education opportunities."
