Education under Betsy DeVos, speculation abounds

In an ironic turn, it appears homeschooling may be expanding. With the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, combined with extreme rhetoric of Democrats, it appears a number of liberals are talking about homeschooling their kids. Of course, this will probably end up similar to celebrities who promised to leave the United States if Donald Trump was elected president, so few will follow through.

However, it might be interesting if we start seeing the left creating private or charter schools to promote liberal causes which may be downplayed in schools over the next 4 years. Given Secretary DeVos's support for school choice, there might be opportunities for more direct comparisons between different education philosophies.
