Yet another awful chapter for this administration.
For starters, Betsy Devos should not be the Secretary of Education. She knows very little about the education world. At her confirmation hearing, she showed to be extraordinary ignorant when it comes to public education. It shouldn’t be a shocker. She’s never been a teacher before. She has a B.S in finance, and nothing else. She’s also never been to a public school before.She was only picked because she wants to drain the public education system and her family is a gigantic Republican donor.
Last year, she was asked by Leslie Stahl if she ever attended a failing public school before. You know, to see first hand how the school operates and how things could change. She said not only said no, but thought it was a good suggestion.
This is many examples of how incompetent Trump’s administration is. They know nothing about their job and struggle to answer basic questions.
For the latest example of Devos’ incompetency, she struggled to defend why we needed to defund a popular and highly successful program, which brings dignity and worth to people with disabilities, After failing to defend, she later suggested “It wasn’t my idea” and she tried to keep the program. Give me a break. She is in charge of Department of Education. It was her job to suggest programs in needs of cutting and expanding. That’s the purpose of her job.
Maybe it was Trump who said “cut the program”, but either way, take some responsibility.
Looks like 20-20 will be another election cycle where I will be voting Democrat as a protest against a political party gone insane and indulges in hate and ignorance.
