KITCHENMASTER: Reader says Betsy DeVos is unqualified

TO THE EDITOR: 

Betsy DeVos is unqualified for U.S. Secretary of Education. Not only does Mrs. DeVos lack any public school certification, teaching or administrative experience, neither she nor any of her children have attended a public K-12 school.

Having championed using public money for private schools and diverting funds away from our traditional public schools, she has been one of the most tenacious big-money educational lobbyists for decades — doling out large contributions to organizations and lawmakers willing to support her anti-leanings.

The recent education confirmation hearing highlighted her evasiveness and complete lack of preparedness/suitability regarding important education issues.

Regardless of political affiliation, each of us should expect and demand someone far more qualified and savvy than Mrs. DeVos to lead our U.S. Department of Education.
