Betsy DeVos took a field trip to a middle school last week and came out asserting that the teachers she met were in "receive mode," a condition that keeps them from meeting the needs of kids. Maybe DeVos is the one who needs to be put in receive mode.

Let's get something straight right here, right now: Betsy DeVos is not Ruby Bridges, and attempts to frame the brand of school choice she supports as "the civil rights issue of our time" ring hollow in almost every way imaginable.

I think Betsy DeVos will be confirmed when the Senate votes on her nomination later today. Is there any silver lining in this at all?
