Podcast: Behind the Headlines on Betsy DeVos

In the aftermath of Betsy DeVos's resignation as education secretary, FutureU hosts Jeff Selingo and Michael B. Horn sit down with Melissa Korn from the Wall Street Journal and Kirk Carapezza from GBH radio in Boston to reflect on her tenure..

 “Devos’ legacy will be her communication style, or lack of communication with us," Carapezza noted. "I know many journalists that collectively made thousands of requests with the Department of Education to interview [DeVos] and all of them were either denied or ignored and I think that’s remarkable and the public should know it.” 

“There were so many times that we were, not just denied, but ignored,” Korn agreed.
