The story originated on the website Alternative Science, which calls itself satire. It says the order went out to Education Department staffers in an email and quotes DeVos as saying globes will be “flattened like God made it just 6,000 years ago” and declaring that the move will help create jobs “when we hire the flattening teams.” DeVos also refers to the Bible as “the best science textbook ever.” A spokeswoman for the department says no such email exists.
