“I think she’s grossly unqualified”
In the video below, college students are asked for their thoughts on President Trump’s Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Their responses sound like they came right off a Democratic Party memo: “DeVos isn’t qualified for the position!” and “Anyone but her would have been a better choice!” and “She doesn’t know what she’s talking about!”
Then the interviewer asks the same students for their thoughts on policies like school choice and vouchers for low income families – policies embraced by DeVos – and the students agree with them.

WATCH: Betsy DeVos haters support her policies
Hypeline News staff asked college students what they thought of Secretary DeVos.
“I think she’s grossly unqualified,” said one college student.
“I wonder what Betsy DeVos is up to? Probably destroying the education system of America, I think that’s what’s going on.” said another.
“She’s a horrible candidate, I don’t know why she got elected.” (Spoiler alert: She wasn’t elected, she was confirmed by the Senate.)
While some people may not like her for “lack of experience”, when asked if they support things like school choice, which the Secretary has and is currently advocating for, almost all are supportive of such measures.
The video is actually fun to watch, fans of Watters’ World will know what I mean:
Of course, the real reason Democrats fear DeVos is because her advocacy of school choice threatens public school teacher unions which are long time allies of the Democratic Party. School choice gives power to parents and kids.
People are beginning to understand that. The following AP report even appeared in the Seattle Times this week:
DeVos promotes school choice, local control
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Monday sought to convince public school leaders that school choice and local control are important in education.
Speaking to members of The Council of the Great City Schools, a group of the nation’s largest urban school districts, DeVos stressed that parents, not Washington politicians, should be making choices about their children’s education.
“Parents know better than any politician or administrator the unique needs of each of their children,” DeVos said. “Time and again, when parents are empowered to take charge of their children’s education, when they have quality options we see the results for students. For me this is just common sense.”
