Education Secretary increases investment in questionable neurofeedback company

According to Politico:

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has increased her financial stake in a “neurofeedback” company that says its technology treats attention deficit disorder and the symptoms of autism. DeVos reported a new investment of between $250,001 and $500,000 in the Michigan-based Neurocore, according to a financial disclosure form that was certified by government ethics officials on Wednesday.

The whole story is here (scroll down to find the story). For background on Neurcore read this.

    FYI You can’t read the whole story without logging into PoliticoPro. But Neurocure sounds like it is more about selling snake oil to desperate people than legitimately offering help. Ethics in the Trump administration? DeVos as Secretary of Education is just one of the many sad commentaries of the current political climate.
