This past week attorneys generals from 18 states and the District of Columbia filed suit against Betsy DeVos over the freezing of an Obama-era law that protected students from predatory for-profit colleges (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2017/07/06/attorneys-general-sue-devos-over-delay-of-rule-to-protect-students-from-predatory-colleges/?utm_term=.655b1c73bf41).
One of those attorneys general was North Carolina’s Josh Stein.
And he should be commended.
With a recent budget proposal by a vindictive General Assembly seeking revenge becasue he won his election against Buck Newton, Stein is faced with a %40 reduction on his budget. Yet, he still did the right thing in protecting vulnerable students from being taken advantage of (http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/education/article159916209.html).
He’s doing something that Betsy DeVos is supposed to do – work for students.
And he’s in an office that he was elected to do by the people, not appointed because he “bought” his way into office.
And speaking of being “qualified.” DeVos was honored this year with something that no other secretary of education has ever been honored with before: a MAD Magazine expose.
Not kidding. Here’s the link – http://www.madmagazine.com/blog/2017/02/07/a-betsy-devos-poster-wed-like-to-see.
