Graduates booed loudly and turned their backs as Education Secretary Betsy DeVos attempted to deliver a commencement address.

“Choose which way you want to go,” Jackson warned.

DeVos continued her remarks praising founder Mary McLeod Bethune as someone who ‘refused to accept systemic and repulsive racism,’ and had ‘the courage to change old ideas.’

Despite a continued wave of boos, catcalls and a smattering of applause, President Trump’s Secretary of Education delivered her message to students.
