President Trump met with various Historically Black College and University leaders this past week, which was seen as a smart political move for the administration. However, things did not go as well as Trump would have hoped. While the major problem coming from the administration’s meeting surrounded Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who claimed HBCU offered a great choice to black people, she was not the main issue.
By the way, the reason for the rise of these schools was that there wasn’t a choice for black men and women, and these schools became a big deal for those seeking an education outside of high school. It is interesting our Education Secretary didn’t know this. However, she may have made a speech that she should not have, yet the entire meeting was a bit odd for may.
