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.
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?
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.
Former DC schools chancellor Michelle Rhee is definitely a celebrity. But that’s about the only way in which she would fit with a Donald Trump administration as education secretary.
The Left thinks it’s progress to pretend that human beings won’t do bad things simply because we don’t want them to. Observant people call that pride.
If the Obama administration and courts change the word ‘sex’ in the Title IX section related to bathrooms, it is changed for the entire statute.
Mississippi, Louisiana, South Dakota, New Mexico, and Arizona must love U.S. taxpayers for sending them so much K-12 money for lackluster education.
Bills to rewrite No Child Left Behind put Republicans in a bad political position and expand the federal role in education.
