Apparently Segregation Was a Choice.

She’s become a name in politics that I despise almost as much as the madman living in the White House. Once again readers, I give you a DeVos complaint.

As those of us paying attention know the Secretary of Education is very much pro-Charter school, often calling it something along the lines of “school choice.” I could go into a long rant about why I dislike charter schools but that will make this a loooong post. If you want to learn more, I’d suggest you google the Last Week Tonight Episode where John Oliver goes into charter schools. If you want something more unbiased, then may I suggest research.

Anyway, DeVos was recently quoted for saying that historically black universities have been: “real pioneers when it comes to school choice.” A lovely statement from someone who clearly thinks the phrase “separate but equal” was a good idea. Colleges and Universities that have been historically black have been that way because many other colleges and universities refused to allow in black students.

Frankly if you don’t know that then you’re not qualified to lead Education in this country.
