Trump’s Education Secretary: Abolish the Department of Education

Betsy DeVos

( – Former Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who served through the entire four years of the presidential administration of Donald J. Trump, told an audience this week, “I don’t think the Department of Education should exist.”

According to The College Fix, “DeVos made the comment during a talk Tuesday at the American Enterprise Institute as she promotes her new book, “Hostages No More: The Fight for Education Freedom and the Future of the American Child,” slated for release on June 21.”

Speaking of what happened during the pandemic, “‘Children became political pawns,’ said DeVos regarding the resistance to re-opening K-12 schools post-pandemic, arguing that the situation showed a key problem in American education: ‘how poorly the system is serving children.’”

As for the Democrats’ desire to grant student loan forgiveness?

“‘It’s a horrible idea, and I don’t know how anyone can defend it. All you’re doing is buying a bunch of political goodwill,’ DeVos said.”
