Aaron Pallas Reviews Betsy DeVos’ Performance and Responses

Diane Ravitch's blog

Aaron Pallas of Teachers College, Columbia University, reviewed Betsy DeVos in The Hechinger Report.

In her testimony and in her written responses, he found her to be largely evasive and misleading. In the matter of graduation rates, her answer was simply untrue.

Although there were more bright spots in the relatively polished written testimony than in her awkward oral testimony, DeVos remained evasive, and did little to address fears that she is a thoughtless proponent of the privatization of American education.

If her actions in office parallel her responses to the Senate HELP Committee, we’re in for a rocky four years.
