So long, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos!
It was that you were the opposite of qualified, an early example of the Trump administration’s elitist disregard for the very role of government agencies themselves.
You promoted charter and religious schools while ignoring public schools.
You reduced protections for victims of sexual assault, for minority students, for gay and trans students.
The end result: politicizing school reopening as an issue, making it more difficult for schools to open safely.
And you’ve done it all with a haughty, better-than-this attitude that makes clear just how little of a shit you give.
You didn’t give a shit this summer, when you sniffed, “The secretary of education isn’t the nation’s superintendent.” »
