IMO the schools she attended don't matter.

They do to me. She has had no ivolvement with public schools. She attended religious schools and homeschool and used used private schools for her 4 children--despite living in an excellent pubic school district in a tony suburb of Grand Rapids. She hates the very concept of public schools and, like Trump, thinks all schools should be private. She and Trump are also likely to fight to get the federal govt out of the school loan business, turning students back into the arms of for-profit lenders. But she is chiefly motivated by getting all taxpayers to pay for Christian schooling.

Out of a bunch of (so far) deplorable cabinet choices, she's the very worst. Did I mention that her family is one of the biggest contributors to so-called soft money/dark money for extremely conservative causes?

PS--How did her family acqure their billions? The old-fashioned way--inheritance. Her father started Amway, placing her family at the top of a pyramid scheme.
