Of course, Betsy DeVos won't be Secretary of Education too long if Trump follows through with his campaign pledge to get rid of the Department of Education.

"As well, on the campaign trail Trump has at various times said that "You could cut [the ED] way, way, way down," that "I may cut Department of Education," and that "The Department of Education is massive, and it can be largely eliminated." At one of the Republican presidential debates, he asserted: "Education through Washington, DC, I don't want that. I want local education. I want the parents, and I want all of the teachers, and I want everybody to get together around a school and to make education great."
