Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, How Can We Resolve Problems by Putting Problem Makers in Charge?

The Department of Education’s operating model can be characterized as government bureaucracy that is combined with a monopoly that operates without any oversight. It is a dreadful combination. As a result, we also have an institution that is good at causing problems but has no genuine interest and ability to resolve them. Below are some real life examples.

Action Financial Services LLC Debt Validation Request

Here’s an example of financial services industry related poor decision making skills that create problems instead of helping to resolve them.

When I first submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the U.S. Department of Education in 2013, the good people at the FOIA Unit invented all sorts of obstacles so that they could refuse to process my request.

Because the Department of Education’s unvalidated monetary demands continued, I had to continue my communication with the Department of Education as well, including the FOIA Unit. So, I asked…
