Betsy DeVos is in a Twitter war with a teacher's union and we can't look away

Posted By on Thu, Jul 20, 2017 at 3:53 PM

It seems that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is taking a note from her boss by firing back at her critics on Twitter.

The AFT teacher's union sent out a tweet today saying "@BetsyDeVos says public $ should invest in indiv students. NO we should invest in a system of great public schools for all kids."



This prompted DeVos to tweet back at the union with a series of tweets that don't exactly add up.



The union responded to DeVos with this tweet, which pretty much sums it all up:


Nice try, Betsy.
