Apparently DeVos believes HBCUs were an alternative choice to public higher education schools rather than the only choice afforded to most blacks.
By the same token, Secretary DeVos stated that, "HBCUs are real pioneers when it comes to school choice". "Their success has shown that more options help students flourish". "These schemes do nothing to help our most vulnerable students while they ignore or exacerbate glaring opportunity gaps", argued the National Education Association in November in reaction to her nomination by Donald Trump.
The backlash was swift, with hundreds of comments appearing online to condemn the secretary's words, highlighting that many HBCUs were created because black students could not attend white segregated schools.
Betsy DeVos' press release regarding HBCUs. "You made higher education accessible to students who otherwise would have been denied the opportunity". According to CBS News, President Trump expects the move to give the initiative "greater visibility" and to encourage cooperation with other agencies. "Some of (DeVos') ideas that may assist in the improvement of public education in large urban schools would be very counterproductive for school districts like Springfield, Nixa, Ozark, Republic and Willard".
Historically black colleges date to the pre-Civil War era when public policy in parts of the nation barred blacks from education.
The Department of Education even clearly states on its website that HBCUs were established because "there was no structured higher education system for black students".
Historian Marybeth Gasman confirmed numerous HBCUs "started in church basements... in old schoolhouses... in people's homes" and were initially established to "provide just basic primary and secondary education" to freed slaves and their children. Trump signed a measure that now places the federal government's program promoting the institutions under the direct order of the White House instead of the Education Department. "No, Sec. DeVos- the segregation and inequality that forced the establishment of HBCUs is not a model of 'school choice, '" he wrote.
DeVos is really out here acting like HBCU's existence is similar to charter schools, which makes sense, as that is the only form of education that she understands, just ask anyone who lives in Detroit. DeVos never attended public school, did not send her kids to public school, never worked in education and does not have any academic background in education.
DeVos saying HBCUs are examples of school choice is like saying the underground railroad is an example of social mobility.
Wade Henderson, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, also skewered DeVos, suggesting she "study the history" of HBCUs and "check the facts".
