Maybe, just maybe, Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump should listen to teachers and public health experts instead of threatening to cut funding for public schools.
The health and safety of students should always be the priority of the Secretary of Education, but DeVos has proven her priorities lie with Trump’s political agenda. She’s unfit for her position.
President Trump and Secretary of Education DeVos have spent July urging schools to reopen buildings and asserting that virtual learning is inferior to in-person instruction. But those messages haven't translated to the department's funding priorities.
Expanded (and current rankings): 1. Stephen Miller. 2. Trump. 3. Kushner. 4. Barr. 5. Ivanka. 6. DeVos. 7. Wolf. 8. Pence. 9. Pompeo. 10. Navarro. 11. Wheeler. 12. Mnuchin. 13. Meadows. 14. Kudlow. 15. Ross. 16. Conway. 17. Gidley. 18. Hicks. 19. Melania. 20. Everyone else
Just a reminder that Trump appointed Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’ brother is Erik Prince, the owner of Blackwater the PMC who has recently been recruiting ex-spies to infiltrate Liberal groups. Oh also Betsy has a $40,000,000 yacht. Trump didn’t exactly drain the swamp.

As Trump/DeVos have demanded schools reopen, Fauci's nuanced take here on @CNNSitRoom : "When you have a lot of infections, you have to decide at the local level, making sure you account for and are sensitive to the safety of the children. That will vary from district to district"
“Here’s what my advice to all parents including you is: Please under no circumstances take medical advice from Donald Trump or Betsy DeVos, especially when it comes to the health of your children.” -National Education Association Pres. Lily Eskelsen Garcia
Betsy DeVos has a brilliant idea. While paltry school budgets deny kids a decent education, she may let states use federal funds to buy guns for educators—not books, computers or pay raises. Guns. Meanwhile the Trump administration opposes all commonsense gun safety legislation.
