DeVos knows next to nothing about actual school performance statistics, even in her home state of Michigan. She also hasn’t visited struggling schools and doesn’t really seem terribly concerned about it.
…When asked if Michigan’s public schools have gotten better since having funding diverted to private, charter and paroquial schools, DeVos responded, “I don’t know. Overall, I– I can’t say overall that they have all gotten better.”
When pressed by Leslie Stahl, who pointed out that diverting funds certainly hasn’t made Michigan’s schools better, DeVos answered, “I hesitate to talk about all schools in general because schools are made up of individual students attending them.”
…DeVos still thinks putting guns in classrooms is a valid solution to school shootings.
“That should be an option for states and communities to consider,” she said. “And I hesitate to think of, like, my first-grade teacher, Mrs. Zorhoff, I couldn’t ever imagine her having a gun and being trained in that way. But for those who are– who are capable, this is one solution that can and should be considered. But no one size fits all. Every state and every community is going to address this issue in a different way.”
She also implied that she believes black students misbehave more than white students, so it’s OK for teachers to call the police as a form of discipline for students of color.
Erik Prince’s sister knows absolutely nothing about her job and doesn’t even have the sense to be more embarrassed by her own idiocy.
Staggering levels of corruption and incompetence. Mind-blowingly so. Oh, an unhealthy dash of racism for good measure.
Well, maybe she’ll end up in jail when shit crashes down on her corrupt as all get out brother. The schoolchildren of this country can only hope so….
