Betsy DeVos recently visited Valencia College in Florida where she talked about the importance of career prep. Today’s students would be wise to listen rather than getting wrapped up in protests.
The Chronicle of Higher Education reports:
In First College Visit, DeVos Praises Career Prep and Community Colleges
Betsy DeVos made her first official visit to an institution of higher education as education secretary on Friday, touring the jobs-training programs at Valencia College, a two-year college in Florida.
Ms. DeVos’s interest in community colleges — specifically, in career preparation — is consistent with her past statements on higher ed. In her first higher-ed address, in February, she noted “the importance of expanding vocational and technical education, the types of career and technical education that community colleges excel at providing.”
Ms. DeVos tweeted from Valencia on Friday morning:
