Good Riddance: Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, a dangerous and deplorable religious extremist, has submitted her resignation to President Donald Trump.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos submitted her resignation to President Trump on Thursday night, becoming the second member of Mr. Trump’s cabinet to resign since pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol on Wednesday.
In a letter to the president DeVos wrote:
We should be highlighting and celebrating your Administration’s many accomplishments on behalf of the American people.
Instead we are left to clean up the mess caused by violent protesters overrunning the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to undermine the people’s business. That behavior was unconscionable for our country. There is no mistaking the impact your rhetoric had on the situation, and it is the inflection point for me.
Impressionable children are watching all this, and they are learning from us.
According to reports, her resignation is effective Friday.
The decision to resign at this late date of the Trump administration is unimpressive, and is simply the action of a rat fleeing from a sinking ship.
For the record, DeVos is and has been a religious extremist who has made it clear that she wants to destroy public education and use taxpayer money to fund Christian schools.
Previously, when asked about spending taxpayer dollars on private and religious schools, DeVos declared:
There are not enough philanthropic dollars in America to fund what is currently the need in education…[versus] what is currently being spent every year on education in this country…Our desire is to confront the culture in ways that will continue to advance God’s Kingdom.
In fact, DeVos is an anti-secular Christian theocrat with no experience working in public education. She never attended public school. She did not send her kids to public school. She has never worked in a public school. She does not have an education degree, and she has never been a teacher. In fact, she has demonstrated an open hostility to public education, and a desire to destroy public education by using taxpayer money to subsidize private, religious schools.
In short, DeVos has always used her immense wealth and influence to try and destroy public education in America.
Bottom line: Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, a dangerous and deplorable religious extremist, has submitted her resignation to President Trump.
