I disagree...she has lived a life of total privilege and the die has been cast. The Tahitian pearl necklace she was wearing retails between $15,000 and $20,000...enough to pay for school lunches for an entire third grade class in a PUBLIC school in a high poverty neighborhood for six months. And the tweed suit, most likely custom made with pure silk lining ran her more than $3,000, the cashmere sweater $900, the lambskin purse around $3,500, and could not see the shoes...probably Jimmy Choo at $5,000. And the limo ride to the school, around $1,500/day (does not include the cost of Secret Service escort). The "academy" may be called a "public" school but it is a CHARTER school...a private school that uses public funds and picks and chooses who they will let in with children with disabilities totally left out...into which DeVos and her pals, the Waltons along with any number of hedge funds pour money to earn high rates of return earned ON THE BACKS OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND AT THE EXPENSE OF OUR NATION'S YOUTH.
The visit did not have an ounce of good intention in it. The CHARTER school was chosen to showcase her support of the charter school system (along with vouchers for private schools with parochial/Christian schools her personal pets) and it backfired! Woo-Hoo!
The look of shock on her face says it all: "What the hell have I gotten myself into?"
