THE OUTGOING PRESIDENT OF MOREHOUSE COLLEGE attended that meeting of HBCU presidents at the White House. The college released a statement discussing this meeting and basically slamming a statement made by the Secretary of Education Betsy Devos regarding HBCUs and school choice.

I bring this up to note that this was the setting for this controversy over presidential aide Kellyanne Kelly Ann Conway who sat with her feet on a couch in the Oval Office. A number of people hit Twitter to blast Conway for her posture in the Oval Office.

Conway has since apologized. As for Secretary Devos, she's wrong HBCUs were founded not to create choice but because there was no choice for the freed slaves as far as higher education.
