On Tuesday, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos eliminated $18 million in funds from the Special Olympics as well as a 26 percent-cut in special education programs in schools across the county.


“We had to make some difficult decisions,"she said. "We are not doing our children any favors when we borrow from their future in order to invest in systems and policies that are not yielding better results."

"I think the Special Olympics is an awesome organization, one that is supported by the philanthropic sector as well," she said.

However, Twitter users dragged DeVos on the internet.
