How Betsy DeVos Impacted the US Education System


Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos was among resignations this week after what she called an “inflection point” in the wake of Washington DC-based riots from supporters of President Donald Trump.

Right before resigning, DeVos announced $54 billion in relief funding for reopening K-12 schools, as well as the ongoing analysis and addressing of potential education gaps caused by the transition to remote learning during COVID. That transition will now pass to the administration of Biden, who will take office later this month.

To gain some perspective on the state of United States education in 2021 and beyond, hosts Daniel Litwin and Tyler Kern invited Kevin Hogan, the host of MarketScale’s Remote Possibilities, onto this industry update.

Hogan dove into the state of public education in the wake of Trump and DeVos’s time in office, the ongoing debate surrounding school choice, changes that need to occur to support the hybrid, technology-focused environments that are likely to stick around post-pandemic, and more.

Key Points:

  1. Betsy DeVos joins a handful of other cabinet members to step down in the wake of the capitol riots.
  2. Right before resigning, DeVos announced $54 billion in relief funding for reopening K-12 schools.
  3. What state is U.S. education in heading into a Joe Biden presidency?
