Rough week for the Department of Education. The confirmation of Betsy DeVos, the bill introduced to abolish it and now a tweet that indicates they need all the reform we can give them. In an attempt to honor W.E.B. Du Bois, the first black man to earn a doctorate degree from Harvard, the official twitter account of the Department of Education spelled his name wrong.

I grabbed this tweet from a USA Today contributor, in the event the Department of Education decided to take their misspelled tweet down. As of this posting they had not.
