In a tizzy after Betsy DeVos was confirmed as President Trump’s Sec. of Education, liberals on Twitter started considering the merits of homeschooling for the first time.
The irony of invoking the freedom to choose where their kids go to school as a way to protest a pro-school choice Sec. of Education seemed lost on them.
I used to make fun of homeschooling but now we live in OPPOSITE LAND, where homeschooling may soon be the only way to learn science— VoidBurger 🍔🎮 (@VoidBurger) February 7, 2017
Betsy Devos... wow. Maybe homeschooling isn't such a bad idea.— Jennifer (@jen2114) February 7, 2017
Well today inspired me to start looking into non-religious homeschooling kits for the fall.— ✨ (@talesofaSAHM) February 7, 2017

This dig at Betsy DeVos and children needing an English teacher as a result of her leadership at the Dept. of Education falls flat because of the spelling and grammatical errors peppered throughout it:
i have suddenly become extremely in favor of homeschooling. if anyone needs an english tutor to fix what @BetsyDeVos is gunna screw up, hmu!— talia jane (@itsa_talia) February 7, 2017
And this guy is on to something — yes, you have to laugh. Liberals are now all pro-school choice as a way of protesting a pro-school choice Sec. of Education. The irony.
DeVos is confirmed. My friend says he is homeschooling his kids. Hahaha. You can't but laugh.— G. Ayo Sopitan (@gsopitan) February 7, 2017
Tempers are high right now, but will liberal threats to homeschool actually materialize?
Perhaps public schools won't be so overrun with intolerant leftists if all the liberals decide to homeschool their kids?
