The #DevosHearing hashtag was going gangbusters tonight as Betsy DeVos took on questions regarding her nomination as Education Secretary.

Here are some of the best:

That awkward exchange with Bernie Sanders.

The role of education in civil rights.


The role of parents in the education process:

For those who think DeVos doesn’t support public education.

Of course, the left had a total meltdown at the thought of somebody disrupting the educational establishment.

Actually, it makes perfect sense, Sally. She wants to extend the school choice she had as a woman of means to less fortunate families.


Randi Weingarten, President of the super-powerful union American Federation of Teachers had an outright meltdown. School choice, of course, threatens that power.

Does Weingarten not know that charter schools are public schools? Ignorant or disingenuous? You decide.

Either way, Grover Norquist is right

Keeping it classy as always, Sen Elizabeth Warren ended the night in true form:

DeVos Hearing Twitter was some of the worst Twitter I’ve seen in a long time, and that’s a pretty low bar. It made one thing clear- America’s education system needs a shakeup.
