Education Secretary Betsy DeVos delivered the commencement address Wednesday at historically black Bethune-Cookman University, despite protests by students and alumni. Watch full video below:

Bethune-Cookman students were warned to stop booing  Betsy Devos or they’d get their degrees mailed to them.

DeVos, a billionaire without education experience, offended many African-Americans in February when she said historically black colleges are the “real pioneers when it comes to school choice.” After a storm of criticism, she acknowledged that these colleges were “born, not out of mere choice, but out of necessity, in the face of racism.”
