The Left Is Still Freaking Out About Betsy DeVos Because School Choice Is An Existential ThreatBetsy DeVos frightens the heebiejeebies out of the Left because her marquee policy—school choice—uncovers their intellectual and moral bankruptcy.

Betsy DeVos’s tenure as U.S. education secretary, like Trump’s arrival in the White House, has occasioned existential panic among the Left. It’s a bit confusing, as she hasn’t done anything yet but visit schools and convene meetings, and her policy positions are decidedly mainstream, both among Republicans and the general public. Like DeVos, majorities of Americans think private schools provide a better education than do public schools, and support school choice in various forms.

Although their personalities couldn’t be more different, both DeVos and Trump seem to embody a sort of Rorschach blot signifying doom to the Left. There’s some legitimacy to this panic.

  2. Thanks for posting. Really good, cogent arguments for school choice/radical decentralization of education. I especially like this quote from the last paragraph:

While not all parents are perfect, giving parents in general the capacity to wield genuine power over their own children will create far better outcomes than any other social arrangement.”

    Amazing what happens when you get back to first principles, isn’t it?
