The Three Rs. Besty DeVos is a pirate and she is approaching public schools. DeVos: Arrr!!
Will the Dept. of Education be recombined with Dept. of Health and Human resources with this bill. The federal office of education, in whatever form, was to ensure students across the country had equitable education. Without it, one problem possible, a student in one state could receive a high school diploma with education equivalent to an 8th grader of another state. Another possibility, a student “could” be taught the earth is flat and only 6000 years old.
This minority selected president got into the office with the help of Russia, putting someone in charge of schools who wants to destroy them by a tie vote and the Vice President having to sway the vote on this highly unqualified candidate. How disgraceful that the Republicans can not work with their colleges and come up with someone who would be working for the children instead of the corporations.
The party of “NO” has gone much further. It is now destroying all of the programs that the government ran. What will be left? A big 100 ft. statue of Trump and Debt for a Wall that Mexico will Never pay for. With the money that will go to that wall are many tangible good things, like better treatment for veterans, finding cures for diseases, (except that means getting rid of BIG PHARMA). Helping receive World, or American hunger, Build small homes for the homeless, witch goes against the grain, but will save millions of medicare, since most homeless are veterans and the mentally ill; It would give them a sense of ownership in society.
I remember my freshman class at an engineering college and how few made it past that first year when all the states had different standards. They were good people but did have an equal chance when competing against those from states that had a higher priority on education.
Things are very different now and many jobs are going unfilled because of skills gaps, the high cost of education and the poor quality and lack of accreditation of the degrees from the for-profit degree mills. Hard to fit on a bumper sticker or in a tweet, so probably no solution soon.
currently urban public education is an oxymoron
