NEA President: ‘No Reason to Trust’ Betsy DeVos - Education Week
Free Registration Access to 3 articles a month at this website. This is an excerpt I thought was worth sharing:
You posed some pointed questions to DeVos in February that she still has not answered. What happens if she does answer them?
Here’s the bottom line, and we’re not trying to be cute here. The bottom line is there is no reason to trust this woman. There is no reason to trust how they would characterize a meeting with me. I’ve seen what they’ve done with other people. Look at what they did with [James] Comey. He didn’t trust them—he took notes! … Who knows what this administration is going to say?
We don’t trust these people. We look at what they did to Michigan public schools. DeVos destroyed them on purpose to create customers, so they were joyless, underfunded, overcrowded places that people didn’t want to work in, and they didn’t want their kids in those schools. It was only to create a demand for what she calls the private charter industry.
