The nonpartisan group Media Matters has issued a call for an investigation of the staffing of the U.S. Department of Education. The call is directed at reporters, since there is little likelihood that either house of Congress would investigate one of its major donors.
Some of the staffers working directly for DeVos are known to have posted racist or homophobic remarks. Several have conflicts of interest. Several are imported from Jeb Bush’s team at his Foundation for Education Excellence. All seem to be from the rightwing “echo chamber” that DeVos and her fellow crusaders inhabit.
None has any known qualifications for working in the Department of Education.
Most major positions remain vacant, other than the appointment of an anti-Clinton lawyer with no relevant experience to run the Office of Civil Rights.
