Warren to DeVos: ‘The financial futures of a generation of young people depend on you.’

Earlier today, Jan. 17, 2017, Warren asked DeVos a series of questions regarding her qualifications to be Secretary of Education at her hearing, basically confirming our worst fears about her track record with public education…or should I say, lack thereof.

Turns out DeVos has had no experience with running a bank, handling a $3 trillion dollar budget, no personal experience with governmental financial aid, such as Pell Grant — all of which are key parts of the Secretary of Education position.

Throughout the round of questions, Warren not only holds DeVos accountable for “financial future of a generation of young people”, but also manages to throw shade in the most poignant way possible at Trump University, reminding us all about the damage that for-profit colleges such as these can do, when not regulated for waste, fraud and abuse.
