Tweet of the day – 2/7/17 #365project

Betsy DeVos was confirmed as the new Secretary of Education today. I’ve tried to blog about my opposition to her candidacy, but I haven’t been able to put the many words and thoughts I have into anything coherent. Mostly, she’s unbelievably unqualified and what scares me most is her worldview. Combined with Jerry Falwell Jr.’s apparent role with respect to #highered, this appointment has us headed towards some kind of edu-theocracy that bothers me to no end.

One theme throughout this #365project has been my need to turn to humor to dull the pain of enduring the first few weeks of the Trump administration. James Martin’s tweet made me “lolsob“. It is, therefore, today’s tweet of the day.
