There are few things I care more deeply about than education. As a candidate for Secretary of Education, one would expect the bar to be set extremely high in terms of the level of education achieved by said candidate and their knowledge of all things related to the field of education.

I would like to provide for consideration, a sampling of the education related portion of your current Secretary of Education, John King's Wikipedia entry:

...Bachelor of Arts in Government from Harvard,[9] King taught social studies and received his master's from Teachers College, Columbia University... King was among the founders of Roxbury Preparatory Charter School... Roxbury Prep's students attained the highest state exam scores of any urban middle school in Massachusetts, closed the racial achievement gap, and outperformed students from not only the Boston district schools but also the city's affluent suburbs..King later received a Juris Doctor from Yale Law School, and a Doctor of Education degree in educational administrative practice from Columbia University Teachers College...King was a 1995 Truman Scholar and received the James Madison Memorial Fellowship for secondary-level teaching of American history, American government, and social studies.

I would now like to provide you with the Wikipedia entry for Besty Devos in its entirety:

DeVos was educated at the Holland Christian High School, a private school located in her home town of Holland, Michigan.[15] She graduated from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she earned a bachelor's degree in business administration and political science, and was "involved with campus politics," according to Philanthropy magazine.[16]

You're kidding me, right? As challenging as Al Franken's question was for her, Bernie Sanders' question was the best:

“My question is––and I don’t mean to be rude––but do you think if you were not a multibillionaire, if your family has not made hundreds of millions of dollars of contributions to the Republican party, that you would be sitting here today?”

Please join me in signing the petition to clearly state that, Betsy DeVos is not qualified to be Secretary of Education
