Black Lives Matter Protesters Block Secretary DeVos from DC School

 In Domestic, Politics

Betsy DeVos, the newly sworn in Secretary of Education, was physically blocked from entering Jefferson Middle School Academy in Washington DC today by a group of Black Lives Matter protesters.

ABC reported,

Betsy DeVos, in her first visit to a public school as head of the U.S. Department of Education, tried to enter a Washington, D.C., middle school this morning but was met with a small group of protesters.

They created a barrier to the entrance of Jefferson Middle School Academy, forcing DeVos to turn around and return to her vehicle.

“She doesn’t represent anything that they stand for,” one protester said.

“Shame. Shame. Shame,” chanted another protester, who followed DeVos to her car.

The responses on that last Twitter thread were 95% negative, calling for her to resign, not be allowed anywhere near a school, and other vicious garbage spewed by the ‘tolerant’ left.

Eventually, Secretary DeVos was able to get inside the school.

Afterwards, Ms. DeVos addressed the incident with this statement:

“I respect peaceful protest, and I will not be deterred in executing the vital mission of the Department of Education. No school door in America will be blocked from those seeking to help our nation’s school children…Focusing on their students and families is at the heart of Jefferson Academy’s approach, and that’s exactly what I believe is at the heart of providing an exceptional education. Great teachers and leaders help make great schools, and I was honored to speak with Jefferson’s team about our shared commitment to strengthening public education.” Betsy DeVos
