‘I Know She’s Stupid’: Teacher Union Leader Calls On Betsy DeVos To Resign

The president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) called Education Secretary Betsy DeVos “stupid” during a Michigan town hall meeting, which featured California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris Monday.

Randi Weingarten told a crowd of about 200 union members from the education and health care fields in Detroit that they must fight against DeVos for disinvestment in public education, Courthouse News Service reported.

“I know she’s stupid,” Weingarten said, according to the news service.

The AFT president added that Harris had visited more public schools in Michigan in one day than DeVos did during her time as secretary, which began in 2017.

“When you don’t have good policy to stand on, I guess you resort to name calling,” Education Department press secretary Liz Hill said to The Daily Caller News Foundation over email Tuesday.

It is “pretty sad for an organization that claims to represent the teaching profession,” Hill added.

Harris was in Detroit as part of campaign events for two days.

The 2020 presidential hopeful introduced a multi-billion dollar policy proposal in March, which includes giving public school teachers a $13,500 raise.
