Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has earned wide-spread criticism for a new rule she issued earlier this week mandating that all subsidized school lunches given to poor children in public schools must be spit in first by at least one lunch lady.
“I want nothing but the best for our school children,” explained Mrs. DeVos in a press conference yesterday. “And the only way we can help students from poor families develop a work ethic their under-earning parents clearly can’t teach them is to humiliate them as much as possible. It’s not their fault they weren’t born into wealthy families like my kids, or me, or my husband, but if we spit into every drink, entree and side dish they get at school, we can remind them that someday they might be rich, too, and be able to rise above the spit-on and become the spitters themselves! I didn’t need to eat and drink copious amounts of saliva to grow up and be rich when I was a kid because my family was already filthy rich, and then I later married into an even richer family, but, if I had been born into a poor family, I am positive that regularly being forced to consume lunch lady loogies with thick, mucous viscosity while the rich kids at my school laughed and jeered at me, I would have been so inspired in all my classes to make sure that I didn’t grow up to struggle financially. These students from poor families will thank me when they’re older, I promise you that.”
