Thoughts on Betsy DeVos’s 60 Minutes Interview

Ask any adult about the upcoming generation and they will tell you that these kids are our future. It is up to us to ensure that they are fully equipped to one day become productive and responsible adults.

The cornerstone of any child’s future is a solid education. The sad thing is, that the American education system lags well behind the educational system of other first world nations. It doesn’t help that Education Secretary Betsy Devos is completely incompetent at her job and displayed the overwhelming lack of ability during her interview with Lesley Stahl on 60 minutes.

While there are many factors for why our children’s education is falling to the wayside (lack of funding, non existent parental support, an overall disrespect for teachers in general, etc), Mrs. DeVos’s interview only adds one more nail to the coffin.

In the private sector, when an employee has proven that he or she is unable to complete the responsibilities of the position they were hired for, they are fired and replaced with someone who can do the job. If you know who wishes to somehow redeem his reputation as President, I suggest that he finds and Education Secretary who can actually do the job.
