Here one for The Road To Hell Library.

Schoolhouse Wreck: The Betsy DeVos Story Paperback – March 17, 2018 by Jason Linkins, Phil Lewis Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has done little to draw attention to herself, but has nevertheless managed to become the most reviled member of Donald Trump’s cabinet. DeVos, the brother of mercenary magnate Erik Prince, is a thicket of contradictions: as a person, she is roundly described as unassuming and kind to those around her. Born into extraordinary wealth, the daughter of an Amway fortune, she has devoted much of her life to a project that has left public schools wrecked in her wake. It is her life’s passion, yet she is broadly unfamiliar with even the most elementary aspects of education policy. How that inexplicable combination – voracious ideological fervor blended with extreme ignorance – will shape the future of schooling in the United States is just one of the intrigues probed by this timely and incisive exposé.

Trump’s current approval rating, according to Gallup, is at 39 percent, which is around where it’s hovered for most of his presidency. The AP’s survey also reveals just how negatively those young — and upcoming — voters view the president. The poll found that a majority in that age range of 15 to 34 year olds— 60 percent — described Trump as “mentally unfit." Another 63 percent agreed that the president “is a racist." (is that all :smirk: ) Young respondents also split with Trump on key issues such as immigration and protecting LGBTQ and minority rights. Fully 69 percent supported a pathway to legal status for DREAMers; 59 percent supported policies to protect LGBTQ rights. ...
