Roland Martin Takes Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to School on HBCUs

Monday night got quite interesting  when the Education Department issued a statement from Education Secretary Betsy DeVos that set quite a few people off, including TV One’s Roland Martin.DeVos released the statement while several HBCU officials are currently in Washington to meet with President Trump and several other Republican leaders in an effort to gain more support and funding.In DeVos statement she sugar coats the HBCU experience and why they were necessary then and now.  “HBCUs are real pioneers when it comes to school choice,” she said. “They are living proof that when more options are provided to students, they are afforded greater access and greater quality. Their success has shown that more options help students flourish.”HBCU advocates were not having it as they took to social media to show their utter discontent for the lackluster summation of the black college experience. Most argued that black students had absolutely no choice due to discrimination and segregation and therefore historically black colleges had to be created.  The social media response was one thing bur Roland Martin’s response this morning on TV One was on another level.Let’s just say Roland gave the Education Secretary a little education.
