Biden stocks cabinet with prep school grads

Jon Levine:

The silver spoons comes in all colors and creeds.

While President Biden has largely delivered on his promise to assemble the most diverse cabinet in US history, there has been considerably less attention paid to his advisers’ economic diversity.

Many of his top cabinet officials come from money and attended ritzy private schools that serve as the traditional breeding ground for the American elite of both parties.

“Democrats abandoned the working class many years ago,” Noam Chomsky, professor of linguistics at MIT and iconic left-wing thought leader told The Post when asked to assess the Biden leadership lineup.

Antony Blinken, Biden’s Secretary of State, was a child of privilege who graduated from NYC’s Dalton School, where tuition today runs $55,210. Tom Vilsack, Biden’s Secretary of Agriculture, graduated from Pittsburgh’s tony Shady Side Academy, a $53,000-a-year boarding school. Katherine Tai, Biden’s pick for US Trade Representative, went to the famed Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. ($46,490). Susan Rice, now serving as Biden’s Director of the Domestic Policy Council, was valedictorian of National Cathedral School, a D.C day school for girls ($47,350). Marty Walsh, Biden’s pick for Labor Secretary, attended Bostons’ Newman School where parents shell out a cool $27,000 a year.
