Trump with Betsy DeVos

 

In yet another  controversy stemming from the Trump-appointed Secretary of Education’s historical ignorance, Betsy DeVos referred to Historically Black Colleges (HBCs) as the “…real pioneers of school choice” in the U.S., never referencing that “choice” was driven by Jim Crow Laws preventing blacks from attending all-white universities in Southern states. Public school supporters expect DeVos will continue to share narratives reinforcing private, for-profit market reforms in education- even when those narratives prove inaccurate or false.
