Betsy DeVos, the cuckservative’s choice for Secretary of Education, by Lion of the Blogosphere.

What I know about her: born super-rich, married super-rich, Christian, devotes herself to cuckservative educational causes like school vouchers and charter schools.

Because Republicans deny HBD nearly as much as Democrats, vouchers and charter schools will not solve the real problems of education because politicians deny what the real problems are. (Republicans accept the liberal premise that there are no differences in genetic learning potential between students, and the most important problem to be solved in education is the black-white achievement “gap.”)

Those who try to measure the “success” of the vouchers and charter schools will try to determine if test scores have improved for poor, minority and “disadvantaged” kids, and I guarantee you that scores on the highly g-loaded reading and math tests will not improve. If anything, the public schools, with their emphasis on endless drilling for the tests, have maxed out any possible score increases for these kids, and higher quality instruction would probably result in lower scores. …

However, vouchers solve the political problem of the left indoctrinating our kids at their schools.

The simplest thing we could do to vastly improve the quality of public education is to separate the intelligent children from the less intelligent children. But liberals are adamantly opposed to this because they say it’s racist. And it’s not something that the cuckservatives are behind either, because the cuckservative’s greatest fear is being called a “racist.” …

Is “cuckservative” an acceptable word now?

I guess the word is too convenient to describe the type of conservative who is wedded to “free enterprise” and Christian right stuff, while being desperate to demonstrate to liberals and the mainstream media that they are good guys, not racists or misogynists.
