A House exchange attacking religious Americans accidentally highlighted the wisdom in Betsy DeVos’s apparent decision this week to refrain from anouncing a federal ‘choice’ program.
It does not matter what your opinion is of Betsy DeVos, booing her during a speech is disrespectful and intellectually lazy.
No stranger to a softball, former Vice President Joe Biden recently told Teen Vogue that Education ‘Secretary DeVos is going to really dumb down Title IX enforcement.’
For the first time since his election, President Trump has reiterated his opposition to Common Core. And his education secretary is starting to sound promising notes.
He believed virtue and religious values were of absolute necessity to our educational system. Surely progressives should agree?
What really offends critics is not that DeVos said historically black institutions offer options to children, but that Trump administration policies threaten Democrats’ political monopoly on the black vote.
Now that Betsy DeVos has been confirmed, it’s time to offer her realistic advice that does some justice to the legitimate concerns about her nomination on both sides.
Let’s read Donald Trump’s reiterated promise to repeal Common Core, not in the ruling class’s legalistic hyperliteralism, but on Trump terms, and on the American public’s terms.
The ferocity of the opposition to Betsy DeVos highlights the importance of maintaining control over a monopolistic system is for the education establishment.
Betsy DeVos’s confirmation as Secretary of Education has sent the Internet into a free fall. Here are 12 of the most insane reactions thus far.
Leftist control over education, from preschool through college, is a prime contributor to leading Republicans’ inability to think through education policy.
Her opponents fight the person, but Betsy DeVos’s platform is sound education reform.
Donald Trump’s pick for education secretary, Betsy DeVos, answered an array of preposterous questions from a bunch of unserious people. It’s a reminder that politics is often tragedy.
Trump’s Cabinet is not trained in spin and convincing people of policies that don’t work. His nominees have real-world experience, and that’s what we need.
Given all the DeVos money floating around Washington, how likely are Republicans to ask some fair but critical questions about a woman who would oversee some $70 billion annually and 5,000 public employees?
Far from debating the merits of Betsy DeVos’s support of school choice, a New York Times op-ed insinuates she’s a religious zealot who intends to Christianize public education.
No objective data finds that a single major federal program has had any effect on any of its targeted outcomes. This ought to give Betsy DeVos some humility about her position.
School choice increases parental involvement and student achievement. Betsy DeVos could use her bully pulpit as education secretary to drastically deregulate federal education policies.
