On Wednesday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah tore into Betsy DeVos, Trump’s choice for education secretary. During her congressional hearing, the charter school advocate refused to fully answer numerous questions about federal funding for schools and regulations that support disabled students. “Every subject she got at the hearing. Failed. Failed. Failed. Failed â€• except Donations 101,” said Noah.
Despite her terrible performance at the hearing, she will surely get the job anyway. “And that’s why I feel like this hearing was a perfect metaphor for the worst of the education system in America,” Noah said. “Here’s a student who’s clearly not proficient in the required subject matter, but because of the system, we know they’re still going to get pushed through.”
