This F*cking Guy’s Education Secretary Had Zero Experience in the Public School System

Feb 07, 2024

Seven years ago today, Betsy DeVos, a school choice activist and Republican mega-donor with zero experience in public schools, was confirmed as secretary of Education in the Trump administration. DeVos’ wealth, influence in the school choice movement, and strong loyalty to Donald Trump created a perfect storm for her nomination, despite lacking the qualifications to run the Department of Education.

In response to the anniversary of DeVos’ confirmation, American Bridge 21st Century Presidential Campaigns Communications Director, Brandon Weathersby, released the following statement:
