At Cobo Hall for a photo op, Betsy DeVos dismisses the idea of visiting nearby Detroit public schools

The national championships of the FIRST Robotics Competition were just held in Detroit, and Betsy DeVos, the Trump administration’s completely unqualified Secretary of Education, having successfully started the process of dismantling the Department of Education’s civil rights infrastructure, was on hand to have her photo taken with the participating high school students… Well, to their […]
