Education Secretary Betsy DeVos appears to be attempting to clean up a messy situation after incendiary comments about black colleges

“They were, in other words, not providing better options, but the only options for these students” reports The statement came after she met with leaders of HBCUs, and implied that HBCUs and school vouchers, of which DeVos is a fierce supporter, similarly afford better options to students.It continued: 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.
