It seems like the people President-elect Donald Trump is picking cabinet members who are against the agendas of the agencies they would be running.
One big example is Betsy DeVos, who Trump has nominated to be the Secretary of Education. She doesn’t have any experience in education, she doesn’t have an education degree, and she never went to public schools. She wants to issue vouchers to private schools and take money from public schools.
Not only does she not know anything about education, but she wants to shove her religion into the mix as well. She would destroy our public, secular education system.
DeVos once said this about our education system:
“There are not enough philanthropic dollars in America to fund what is currently the need in education…[versus] what is currently being spent every year on education in this country…Our desire is to confront the culture in ways that will continue to advance God’s Kingdom.”
She is a right-wing extremist, and she will run our education system into the ground. We are not a theocracy, and we will have to fight to stay that way.
