DeVos says Education unchanged since 1970's? Maybe in private schools.

If you want to know just how out of touch Trump's education secretary Betsy DeVos is, and you'll know what I mean if you've ever met your kids teachers, this comment makes it very clear. EdWeek:
In DeVos' view, education hasn't changed much over the past five decades or so. That's left many kids stuck in a "mundane malaise," she said.
Really, hasn't changed since I was in school, in the 1970's? Stunning and wrong beyond words.

And how about one of the first lessons in English, don't end sentences with a preposition. She has no idea "where its at..."
Food same as 1960's too?
She thinks there are some schools operating in a "wide-range of settings [using] unique and creative ways to really meet students where they are at.
"I take this as another really excellent example of schools that are specifically meeting the needs of students where they are at."
