The Betsy DeVos era in public education is over. And it couldn’t have come a minute too soon.

Last week, after an insurrection at the Capitol incited by the president himself, the administration’s staff and cabinet members started jumping ship—because, for some reason, after four years of working under a white nationalist and fascist, inciting a violent uprising was a bridge too far.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was among those who resigned. DeVos is perhaps best known for making the lives of sexual assault survivors a living hell. But her tenure was filled with all kinds of craven and bigoted decisions that made our nation’s education system a more hateful and dysfunctional place for students.

In a perfect world, DeVos would have resigned because she was a terrible education secretary, not because she likely didn’t want to be involved in a cabinet vote to remove the president from office under the 25th Amendment.
