Education Secretary Betsy Devos slammed the increased demand for student debt forgiveness and free college by calling it a socialist takeover of higher education.
While addressing a virtual conference Tuesday, Devos said higher education policies should never entice students into greater debt nor should they put taxpayer dollars at greater risk. She went on to say college counselors would become “rationers” who would allot state approved higher education options.
Devos said if the left moves forward with free college, higher education would begin to resemble a “failing K-12 school with the customer service of a DMV.”
#HigherEd policies should never entice students into greater debt, nor should they put taxpayer dollars at greater risk. There are too many politicians today who support policy that does both. Ultimately, nothing is “free.” Somebody, somewhere pays the bill. #FSATC2020 pic.twitter.com/9A06ZFy2rO

Devos argued that it’s unfair to make the almost two-thirds of Americans who don’t go to college pay for the one-third who do. She went on to point out that “ultimately, nothing is free.”
