Education Secretary Betsy DeVos slammed calls to “cancel” student debt or make college free, making a case this week against what she called a “socialist takeover” of education — and prompting a fiery rebuke from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“Policies should never entice students into greater debt. Nor should they put taxpayer dollars at greater risk. There are too many politicians today who support policy that does both,” DeVos said. “Still more advance the truly insidious notion of government gift giving. We’ve heard shrill calls to ‘cancel,’ to ‘forgive,’ to ‘make it all free.’ Any innocuous label out there can’t obfuscate what it really is: wrong.”
