Ridiculous anti-school-choice railing in the New York Times

Perhaps it should not come as a surprise from the author of a book called "The Good News Club:  The Christian Right's Stealth Assault on America's Children", and perhaps it should no longer come as a surprise on the editorial pages of the New York Times, but this piece, "Betsy DeVos and God's Plan for Schools", is an over-the-top, utterly ridiculous, innuendo-driven hit-job on school choice (and, indeed, on parents' right to choose religious schools).  It tells us almost nothing about the mainstream school-choice movement.  The Times has been running a steady stream of anti-education-reform pieces in recent days, which suggests that, notwithstanding the fact that a Trump Administration is reasonably regarded as presenting any number of risks and dangers, the Times is particularly solicitous toward the self-interest of the "education blob."
