Betsy DeVos: Privatizer

Donald Trump’s selection of billionaire Betsy DeVos for Education Secretary puts the right-wing attack on public education into overdrive:

  • Just look at DeVos’ home state of Michigan, where she and her husband have poured millions into privatization. Charter schools are showing subpar outcomes, are rife with abuses, and lack public accountability. She even spent more than a million dollars to stop the Michigan legislature from cleaning up the state’s for-profit charter schools.
  • DeVos is a strong advocate for voucher programs to send public dollars to private religious schools.
  • DeVos has never taught children or served as administrator of any educational institution, and she has no credentials in teaching or education whatsoever.
  • DeVos has never even attended a public school, nor did she send her own children to one. That’s privatization in a nutshell: low-income families must suffer the effects of these dangerous policies while the wealthy opt out.

Her only qualification seems to be how she has spent her money: both as an opponent of public education and a major donor to the Trump campaign.
