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.
