DeVos Urges Career Staff to ‘Be the Resistance’ as Biden Takes Over

 Betsy DeVos

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos urged career employees at the Education Department on Tuesday to “be the resistance” when the Biden administration comes into power next month, according to a recording of her remarks obtained by POLITICO.

During a department-wide virtual meeting to discuss the shift to the new administration, DeVos acknowledged that most of the agency’s thousands of career employees “will be here through the coming transition and beyond.”

“Let me leave you with this plea: Resist,” DeVos said. “Be the resistance against forces that will derail you from doing what’s right for students. In everything you do, please put students first — always.”

Well, I would have liked to see DeVos do a lot more to dismantle federal education regulations and funding while she was at the helm but I have no problem with her stirring up resistance with the lefty Biden administration coming in.

  1. politics needs conflict. What's new? Perhaps we will have another internal war so we can get the big changes planned for us.
