Just the Thing to Fix Education: Pyramid Schemes, Mercenaries, and a Hatred of Public Education

Donald Trump has selected Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.

For those of you are unaware of her background, she is married to the Amway heir (Pyramid scheme, check), is the brother of Blackwater founder Erik Prince (Mercenaries, check), and she has been at the forefront of replacing public schools with charter schools and vouchers to religious schools (Hates public education, check).

I am not surprised, but I am a bit disappointed.

Trump has made a number of pro-Charter statements.

Still, Betsy DeVos is a pretty heady mix of wing-nuttery, corruption, and evil.
