Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos ended up on 60 Minutes Sunday night. It's unclear if she knew she was going to be there, because she seems insanely unprepared for an interview? DeVos is best known for suggesting guns should be allowed in schools in case of grizzly bear attack, so folks tuned in to see what else she'd try.
On of the worst clips from the whole nightmare was put up on twitter by Axios, and it features interviewer Lesley Stahl trying to get a coherent answer from DeVos about why she isn't investing money on things like making sure the school buildings don't fall down on kids. DeVos's thing is focusing on the individual kids by giving them vouchers to go to the schools they want, which could potentially be a good thing. However....
"Have you seen the really bad schools? Maybe try to figure out what they’re doing?" Stahl asks.
"I have not," DeVos admitted. "I have not. I have not intentionally visited schools that are underperforming."
"Maybe you should," Stahl said, though she should have screamed it.
Folks are roasting DeVos for being so completely incompetent on screen. Again.
However, as with Donald Trump and many of his cohorts, Betsy DeVos still has an agenda. And that's perhaps to destroy public schools, as many people suggested:
A lot of these charter schools DeVos is pushing kids towards are run by evangelical Christians, and few would be subject to the same protects against discrimination that public schools are. DeVos also wants to eliminate rules that protect the safety of LGBTQ people and access for the differently abled.
But it's more fun to think of her as just being thicker than day old oatmeal:
Stupid like an evil, malicious fox.
