Michael Busch reflects on Betsy DeVos’ lack of knowledge of federal policy, federal laws, and federal programs and wonders if she will be a fish out of water in her new post?
He recalls when New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg brought in a novice to run the school system. She had no experience with public schools; she had been a magazine publishing executive. She didn’t know the lingo or the issues. She made gaffe after gaffe in public meetings. She depressed the mayor’s poll ratings. She didn’t last 100 days.
