Betsy DeVos is not qualified to serve as the US Education Secretary

by apartmented

She has ~~not attended public school~~ not attended/no knowledge of the public education system,

for which managing is one of the largest responsibilities of the Education Secretary/Department of Education.

As demonstrated in her Senate hearing, she does not know the difference between proficiency and growth, one of the most eminent controversies in standardized testing today.

At the hearing, she also declined to state that she supports equal accountability of results for private schools to public schools.

A lack of accountability would leave private schools able to progress students through the education system without preparing them properly or by teaching them biased material.

She has ~~no prior education~~ almost no prior *public* education (thanks /u/stargazerAMDG) managerial experience.

I want to have an actual conversation with someone who understands the other side of this argument in light of her confirmation.

Please help convince me that this confirmation is not horrible for our education system and America's children.
