Peter Greene: Betsy DeVos Explains What’s the Matter with Kids Today

Published January 22, 2019 by Nan Mykel

Onbelievable, but I believe it. I could easily rant, but I won’t. Have a nice da.

Peter Greene doesn’t object to the fact that Betsy DeVos was born rich, married rich, and has always lived in a bubble.

But he was taken aback by her conclusion that kids today live sheltered lives. They don’t know anything about entrepreneurship and hard knocks (like she does?).

They lack grit and character because they are sheltered. Like she was?

Did I mention that a quarter of the children in the U.S. live in poverty, and half of them qualify for free or reduced lunch, the federal standard for poverty/low-income. In some cities, like Cleveland, every child is poor, by federal standards. They don’t seem to live the sheltered life, do they?
