Betsy DeVos announced that she will be eliminating the worst performing public school every year. She’ll be eliminating the worst performing school in every single state.
This would mean that 50 schools would be eliminated every year. The schools will be ranked by the student’s scores on academics, physical assessments, and the amount of financial support each family can donate to schools.
The new change comes from Betsy attempting to eradicate terrible performing schools. Instead of trying to improve them, DeVos just plans to completely get rid of them.
When Betsy DeVos was asked what the transition plan would be for the kids who attended the eliminated schools, she shrugged and said they now can attend a better school. She considered this a win-win for everyone.
