Democrats Despair as DeVos Does Same Thing as Duncan

The massive CARES bailout put lots of money into the hands of Betsy DeVos and provided little guidance or oversight on how the money would be spent. Unsurprisingly Ms. DeVos has decided that she is going to use some of those funds to underwrite parochial schools and the response from politicians is equally unsurprising: the Democrats are upset that Ms. DeVos is using government funds to pay for religious schools and the GOP is looking the other way as the Executive branch ignores a law passed by the Legislature.

But neither party has a good reason to be upset. The GOP is getting what they asked for when they exonerated the POTUS when he unilaterally withheld funds from the Ukraine and the Democrats who supported the Obama/Duncan RTTT initiative based on Duncan’s beliefs that schools should run like a business. Both parties should realize by now that if they want to help public schools they should give money to the STATES to use explicitly for that purpose and to use Title 1 formulas to distribute it.
