And now we turn to Betsy DeVos, who has been flying under the radar lately while Scott Pruitt has been drawing all the fire for his obvious corruption.
So what got my attention that DeVos has done, you ask? She’s visiting schools in New York. Private Schools. Private, Religious Schools. Private Jewish Schools. And U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is not scheduled to visit any PUBLIC schools:
“Still, at least one thing appears certain: The country’s top education official has not made plans to visit any district schools in the nation’s largest school system while she’s here, according to city education department spokeswoman Toya Holness.
“And it’s unclear whether she reached out to any of the city’s high-performing charter networks, which would be an obvious way to promote school choice, one of her signature policy goals. Spokespeople for three large networks — Achievement First, KIPP, and Uncommon Schools — all said Monday they were not aware of DeVos reaching out to set up a school visit in New York City.”
