In her US Department of Education (USDOE) bio, US ed sec Betsy DeVos advertises that her mother was “a public school teacher”:
Secretary DeVos has been involved in education policy for nearly three decades as an advocate for children and a voice for parents. She is especially passionate about reforms that help underserved children gain access to a quality education.
DeVos’ interest in education was sparked at an early age by her mother, a public school teacher.
DeVos tries to use this sketchy history about her mother as “a public school teacher” to establish credibility as a supporter of traditional public education.
Of course, the fact that DeVos offers no additional details is at once suspicious. She does not offer info on the subject that her mother, Elsa Zwiep, taught. She does not include the number of years that Zwiep taught.
She does not even name the public school.
