‘Be the resistance,’ she says — angering educators on Twitter
by Nicole Lyn Pesce
So much for a peaceful transition …
During a virtual Education Department meeting on Tuesday, President Trump’s education secretary, Betsy DeVos, told career employees to “be the resistance” when the Biden administration takes over next month.
Politico got hold of a recording of her remarks. Acknowledging that many Education Department employees will remain through the transition, DeVos said:
‘Let me leave you with this plea: Resist. Be the resistance against forces that will derail you from doing what’s right for students. In everything you do, please put students first — always.’ — Betsy DeVos
