Poor Ms. Betsy. It seems she doesn’t have enough. Neither, evidently, do her friends, Davey and Charlie Koch of the boy band, the Koch Bros. But here’s the good news: the gold rush to privatize (viz..destroy) public education is speeding up. Despite this week’s protest at Harvard.
Perhaps she, Davey and Charlie and their pals will continue to plug into the Law of Attraction to “allow” more gold into their coffers. So what if it’s Students Last? Geeze…can’t a lady buy more diamonds?
An inquisitive Harvard student asked this question of Ms. DV from the floor:
Student: So, You’re a billionaire with lots and lots of investments, and the so-called “school choice” movement is a way to open the floodgates for corporate interests to make money off the backs of students. How much do you expect your net worth to increase as a result of your policy choices and what are your friends on Wall Street and in the business world—like the Koch brothers—saying about the potential to get rich off the backs of students?
“You don’t have to answer that,” her Harvard host told her. With that, she left the room.
Guess she doesn’t know the answer.
