    It's unfathomable to me that Americans are so eager to destroy a nation-wide public school system that made this country great.

    She's wrong but our public schools need to get back to basics also. The 3 r's. Sprinkle in a little history, health and a shop class. Quit prioritizing sports, and using our schools as bussiness and religious training centers.

    Instead of building up public schools she seeks to dilute them and enrich others like her that run charters. It's a business to them. With no accountability. Trump University for our children. Take the money.

    Sure DeVos, poor kids in poverty stricken neighborhoods are sure going to be able to use "school choice" to reach a charter school 20 miles away.

    This is the kind of crap you get when you put these silver spooner out of touch people in important positions.

    Pensions.

    Sad how the person who couldn't even discuss the difference between growth and proficiency measurements in her confirmation hearing is our secretary of education. Nor could she discuss anything significant about the IDEA act which takes priority over pretty much everything in public education. She's a rich idiot who is simply vomiting ignorant talking points and ideology.

    Ohio's Kasich is a huge charter school/eschool advocate.
    Ohio is taking millions back from an school who falsified enrollment numbers.
    And Ohio made a USA Today article about charter schools getting millions for students that never show up to class.
    Many charter school students do worse on testing than public schools.
    An emphasis on STEM is a good idea.
    Just not for these "fake" schools.

    It would appear that Betsy has been supplanted as Cabinet Cougar by Kirsten Nielson.
