Why can't people see how horrible Betsy DeVos is as Secretary of Education?
She is the last person who needs to be put in charge of education when she doesn't know the difference between proficiency and growth, opposes public education, wants to defund public education, wants guns in schools, and does not feel private schools should be held accountable for transparency or meeting the needs of individuals with disabilities.

Consider this: The same folks were able to overlook fraud, sexual abuse, serial adultery, racism, bigotry, misogyny and allegations of child rape. I doubt that they care that DeVos is not qualified.

She is the first Secretary of Education who seems to understand that our public school systems are failing millions of kids, and that she actually is in favor of reform.
The only reform other Education Secretaries have been in favor of are either throwing more money at a failing system or standardized testing.
DeVos at least acknowledges that actual reform to the system of education is needed.

Perfect example of cut & paste "thinking"... Are you SURE you hit every DNC talking point? You know why schools fail but charters don't: public schools waste resources on students who don't want to learn while charter schools do not have enrolled in them! No Child, Race to... What? Failure. Keep pumping that $$$ into failure... Keep drilling holes to let out water in that leaking boat! Can you even name Obams Department of Education head? Bet not without Google... Because that's all anyone needs to learn in this Burger Job Economy: How to poke keys and pads to look up what Wikipedia says!

I want guns in schools as well someone needs to protect children because gun free zones make a lot of victims.

Our public schools can barely be considered schools. They are left-wing indoctrination camps.
