Education Secretary Betsy DeVos:

On the federal education budget:

“There’s clearly an opportunity to slim down the department in some ways. I don’t know if that will ultimately significantly reduce the overall expenditure, but it may, it may help incentivize states in other ways.”

On changes in schools during her tenure:

“I expect there will be more public charter schools. I expect there will be more private schools. I expect there will be more virtual schools. I expect there will be more schools of any kind that haven’t even been invented yet.”

In her ideal world, the federal government has any a role in education?

“It would be fine with me to have myself worked out of a job, but I’m not sure that — I’m not sure that there will be a champion movement in Congress to do that.”

Congratulations, Wingnuttia, you drained the swamp. You own this, lock, stock, and misspelled “barrull.”

For ⅓ of a 1/7 of a point towards your midterm grade, give ol’ Betsy DeVos the MPS nickname she deserves. And as now is our tradition, we will have a vote (rigged) to make the final determination.

  13. “Betsy DeVos” is an anagram for:

    Bevy Ed Sots
    Bossy Ed Vet
    By Eds Votes
    Sob Seedy TV
    Be Sods Ye TV

    (almost poetic, eh?)

    If we use her full proper name (Elisabeth Dee DeVos) we get:

    See A Shit Ed, Beloved
    Ed Shit Bodes Ale Eve

    And if we throw in the nickname with her full name, we get:

    Abetted Bolshevised Eyes
    These Vote Yeses, Biddable
    Blasé Devotee Shit Bed? Yes

    That is to say, I pick…
    “Billionaire Barbie”

    Or Betsy DeBois, but perhaps that’s too subtle?

    Betsy DisRuptor – she brags about being a disruptor on her own website blurb. I guess she thinks that the folks caught in the undertow of disruption are just too poor to care about.
