Borowitz is satire/humor

But the satire of DeVos certainly has a basis in reality. Actual DeVos quotes:

On why guns should be allowed in schools: "I will refer back to Sen. Enzi and the school he is talking about in Wyoming. I think probably there, I would imagine there is probably a gun in a school to protect from potential grizzlies."
Because of the continual reports of grizzly bear attacks in schools...

On why HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) exist: "HBCUs are real pioneers when it comes to school choice. They are living proof that when more options are provided to students, they are afforded greater access and greater quality."
Because the newly freed slaves weren't happy with the educational choices in their integrated schools, so they started schools of choice...

On what to do if you live in a bad school district: "If you don't live in an area with good public schools, you can move to a different place if you have the financial means to do so."
Yeah, all you inner city parents, just move out to the suburbs.
