So Department of Education head Betsy DeVos, whose achievements thus far include announcing a review of campus sexual assaults to benefit the accused, ending regulations to protect student borrowers, and pushing school choice, has accepted an invitation to give a speech at the University of Baltimore's fall commencement on Dec. 18. City Paper quickly heard from a couple faculty members who were shocked and angered by the decision, which was apparently done without telling students or staff ahead of time. Swiftly, Student Government President Mariame Dangnokho released a letter saying that student leaders were not part of the selection process. A petition has been started asking University of Baltimore President Kurt Schmoke to open up the selection process, and walkout protests happened last Monday in the afternoon and evening. UB should make alternative plans.
