Hmm, I sure understand reasons for suspicion based on DeVos’ background, but I just can’t see the speech that way. Argument by anecdote? Sure, that’s how it goes in politics.I suppose one could say the Movement for Black Lives got going primarily by “anecdote” too. Enough outrageous anecdotes conforming to a pattern can make a case that a system is broken and needs reform.

Maybe I’m just happy to project reasonability on it, based on all the people I’ve seen making the same points — and similarly tracing the blame to an “overcorrection” in response to the Title IX shakedown initiated by the 2011 DOE letter.
