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.
