Debunks Betsy DeVos Saying Children Die
A viral and factually false Facebook post claimed U.S. Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, stated reopening schools in the fall would likely result in the deaths of children.   The post read, “So Betsy Devos today said ‘only’ .02% of kids are likely to die when they go back to school. That’s 14,740 children.”

The post caused hysteria among FB users who also took to Twitter to shame DeVos for her alleged disregard for the lives of American children. One user denounced the Secretary’s callousness saying, “That’s about 40 times the number of school shooting victims from the last 10 years.”

DeVos’s press secretary, Angela Morabito debunked the viral quote as false. “The secretary has never and would never say such a thing,” in an email to the Daily Caller. “This is a total lie. She would not be working to get kids back to school if it were unsafe.”   In a FOX News Sunday appearance, DeVos affirmed her commitment to sending children back to school in the fall saying, “There’s nothing in the data that suggests that kids being in school is in any way dangerous.”

Hitler also said he had a lot of Jewish friends he was sending to summer camp…  A Check Your Fact article also discredited the Twitter post.  Since her appointment by president T-RUMP in 2017 DeVos has been a favorite target of the Left as well as several others who are nutcases.

DeVos is a passionate supporter of school choice, which works to give all children, especially minorities, the opportunity for a better education.   ( Minorities,  she has never even been in a public school, what does she know about minorities?)  Democrats have been almost unanimous and unwavering in opposition to school choice, in part because they receive millions of dollars in campaign contributions from teachers unions who are firmly opposed to parental choice in education.   

Secretary DeVos joins the American Pediatric Association in her concerns for children not returning to school in the fall, something both say is harmful to kids.   ( Bullsh*t, she is nothing but a T-RUMP-pet and will say anything, anytime, about anything)  Studies have shown that online learning has been detrimental to students’ education. In the second largest school district in America, the Los Angeles Unified School District, 40 percent of elementary school students did not even log into class once as of the first week of April, three weeks after the system closed. For students who did log on, superintendent Austin Beutner, stated that, “ merely logging in does not tell us anything more than the student turned on their computer.” 

Despite these dismal statistics and countless anecdotal reports from students and parents who homeschooled during lockdown with little success, America’s teachers’ unions continue to advocate for keeping students and teachers home in the fall.  ( And they should be the ones to make the decision, not he political directed hacks)



Not With Her Around - She’ll  Ruin Things

I seriously believe that, and I see a trend not befitting who we were and who we are today.  We are always being told by those we chose to represent us, the politicians whom remind us how exceptional we and our children are.   That's just not true.  More liken to the Plebes of Rome being told how great things were and they could watch the slaves and Christians get eaten by lions or killed by professional killers called “ Gladiators” trained for entertainment.  

A Family Not Too Bright
WASHINGTON – The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee says Michigan’s Erik Prince — Betsy DeVos’ brother — needs to be investigated to determine whether he lied to Congress over a meeting with a Russian financier.   Speaking at a Washington Post Live event on Tuesday, Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said the committee will make a criminal referral to the Justice Department about the possibility that Prince gave the panel false testimony.

Blackwater CEO and founder Erik Prince - Prince, a former Navy SEAL who grew up in west Michigan and went on to found the security company Blackwater, was mentioned prominently in the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in regards to a meeting he had with a prominent Russian financier with close ties to Vladimir Putin just before President Donald T-RUMP took office.

Hmmm Betsy give T-RUMP money, brother talks to Russians... this stinks higher than Norwegian frozen GRAVLAX left to rot in the sun...

The Bitch Tried To Kill This Bill
The Department of Education said Thursday that it would wipe away student debt for 15,000 borrowers, implementing an Obama-era rule that Secretary Betsy DeVos has fought to block for more than a year.  The debt cancellations will total about $150 million.

The rule, known as Borrower Defense to Repayment, was designed to help students cheated by for-profit colleges get relief on their education debt.  The announcement comes about two months after  a federal judge ordered immediate implementation of the rule . The judge had sided with attorneys general from 18 states and the District of Columbia who sued DeVos for delaying the rule while she worked on rewriting it.

Those students who will immediately see their loans canceled were at schools that closed while they were enrolled. About half of the debt was owed by borrowers who attended one of the now defunct for-profit Corinthian Colleges.

The network of schools folded in 2015 after it was fined $30 million by the government for misleading prospective students with inflated job placement numbers. At the time, about 16,000 students were enrolled at its remaining 28 campuses.

But the rule also was designed to make it easier for students to apply for relief if they believe their schools misled them, by inflating job placement rates, for example -- even if they weren't enrolled when the schools closed.

Many of those students still have debt relief applications pending.

"This is a good first step, but it's not good enough," said Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, a senior member of the Senate committee on education, in a statement.

"I call on Secretary DeVos to abandon her attempts to rewrite the borrower defense rule to let for-profit colleges off the hook and instead fully implement the current rule and provide relief to more than 100,000 borrowers who were cheated out of their education and savings," she said.

The Department of Education will begin emailing borrowers on Friday to notify them that their debts from the loans will be canceled within the next 30 to 90 days.

Dumb System Now Gets A Dumb Leader
Our exceptional children are dumbed down by useless learning systems, FCAT, No Child Left Behind and once again when Politics enter the classroom, or anything else lately there is failure.  We do not teach history and what has been our past and how it affects our future. 

Ten years ago we led the world in learning in math and science and today we are in the middle of the  pack being beaten by countries you never heard of or couldn’t even spell their countries name.

How do US students compare with their peers around the world?  Recently released data from international math and science assessments indicate that US students continue to rank around the middle of the pack, and behind many other advanced industrial nations.

One of the biggest cross-national tests is the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), which every three years measures reading ability, math and science literacy and other key skills among 15-year-olds in dozens of developed and developing countries. The most recent PISA results, from 2015, placed the US an unimpressive 38th out of 71 countries in math and 24th in science. Among the 35 members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which sponsors the PISA initiative, the U.S. ranked 30th in math and 19th in science.

Younger American students fare somewhat better on a similar cross-national assessment, the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study. That study, known as TIMSS, has tested students in grades four and eight every four years since 1995. In the most recent tests, from 2015, 10 countries (out of 48 total) had statistically higher average fourth-grade math scores than the U.S., while seven countries had higher average science scores. In the eighth-grade tests, seven out of 37 countries had statistically higher average math scores than the US, and seven had higher science scores.

I help mentor several middle graders on science projects,  and am amazed about how much knowledge they had about their project, but who knew little or nothing about World history, the American government and how it runs, yet we tell them they are exceptional …in what.  Three of the children were from other countries, refugees from China and India and they were brilliant for their age, well supervised by their parents and extremely computer literate and interested in worldly affairs.

In one classroom,  I asked several whom did we fight in the second world war and they did not know.  They are taught math and science to pass the tests, as an evaluation of the teacher.  Our entire education system is going down the toilet and TRUMP picked the worst possible looser to run the educational program in this country.   

Not knowing history, she never attended any public schools, only allows us to make the same mistake over and over again.  Putting her in the drivers seat will ruin what little hope we have for a future resurgence in education.  She like TRUMP is in the 1% and does not care about the 99% of children who need public schools

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos struggled before a congressional subcommittee on Tuesday to defend the administration's proposal to cut at least $7 billion from education programs, including eliminating all $18 million in federal funding for the Special Olympics.

When Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., a member of the House Appropriations subcommittee, asked whether DeVos knew how many children would be affected by cutting Special Olympics funding, DeVos said she did not know.  Pocan responded: "I’ll answer it for you, that's OK, no problem. It’s 272,000 kids that are affected."

DeVos then said, “  I think that the Special Olympics is an awesome organization, one that is well supported by the philanthropic sector as well.”  Pocan at that point interrupted the education secretary to say that the proposed budget includes a 26 percent reduction to state grants for special education and millions of dollars in cuts to programs for students who are blind.

After referring to his own nephews with autism, Pocan asked DeVos, “ hat is it that we have a problem with, with children who are in special education?"  She replied, “Supporting children with special needs, we have continued to hold that funding at a level amount and in the context of a budget proposal that is a 10 percent reduction.”  The congressman stopped DeVos and claimed she was not answering his question.

Pocan wasn't the only House member to criticize DeVos over the proposed cuts to special education.

Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., noted that past proposed budgets also attempted to eliminate federal funding for the Special Olympics.  "I still can’t understand why you would go after disabled children in your budget," Lee said Tuesday. "You zero that out. It’s appalling.”  Competitors in rhythmic gymnastics dance during the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on March 20, 2019.Karim Sahib / AFP - Getty Images

An administration official seemed to try to quell the backlash saying that DeVos donates her nearly $200,000 salary and the Special Olympics has been a recipient of that donation.  DeVos in a statement Wednesday defended the proposal to eliminate Special Olympics funding, saying it is "not a federal program."

"It's a private organization. I love its work, and I have personally supported its mission. Because of its important work, it is able to raise more than $100 million every year," DeVos said. Eliminating its federal funding is a matter of “ udget realities," she said, as the government is unable to fund "every worthy program."

Secretary DeVos Corrects the Record on T-RUMP

Administration  Support for Students with Disabilities

MARCH 27, 2019  Following is a statement from U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos:

"It is unacceptable, shameful and counterproductive that the media and some members of Congress have spun up falsehoods and fully misrepresented the facts.

"Make no mistake: we are focused every day on raising expectations and improving outcomes for infants and toddlers, children and youth with disabilities, and are committed to confronting and addressing anything that stands in the way of their success.

"The President's budget reflects that commitment. It supports our nation's 7 million students with disabilities through a $13.2 billion request for IDEA funding, the same funding level appropriated by Congress. All of that money goes directly to states to ensure students with disabilities have the resources and supports they need. 

The budget also requests an additional $225.6 million for competitively awarded grants to support teacher preparation, research and technical assistance to support students with disabilities. 

"The Special Olympics is not a federal program. It's a private organization. I love its work, and I have personally supported its mission. Because of its important work, it is able to raise more than $100 million every year. There are dozens of worthy nonprofits that support students and adults with disabilities that don't get a dime of federal grant money. But given our current budget realities, the federal government cannot fund every worthy program, particularly ones that enjoy robust support from private donations."

The Real Story
Our future is doomed with this reject in the Cabinet  as the leadership of the future for education.  Education, in the US dropped from first in the world to 25-30 and now more lies - now hosted by a real nutcase typical T-RUMP appointee as she paid T-RUMPS campaign a couple million dollars for the job.  The next generation is in jeopardy.

So Trump cut the budget knowing that she would not go against him.  She wants vouchers for private schools, more for the rich and nothing for the poor that would help.

No money for schools, teachers, and eliminate the department of education, he slashed the education budget by billions... Just another place Donald don’t think money is needed. 

Our education standards are slipping badly and getting serious nationally.  So he puts an Evangelically declined Jesus juicer born-again fruit-keg in the Cabinet position not fit to run a lemonade stand in the desert in a third world country.

Legislation to foster school choice has not passed in Congress, although the new tax bill does allow families to use tax-free college savings accounts to pay for private, K-12 education. 

Basically, the nutcase Trump hired to do the job, Betsy DeVos has more to worry about like being kidnapped and hanged, she is incompetent, arrogant, an Evangelical nutcase, a rich bitch who bought her job, many people feel, and not well liked. 

Thats means she fits right in the cabinet.  Right now the status to better education, is do nothing, doing nothing, done nothing.  Our kids on the world scene are failing horribly...  Our kids and yours will suffer at her hands...

Slogans and chants, T-RUMPS most dangerous device have meaning and are effective:  So I will in the best of Washington tactics offer a chant I heard when she went to a school in NY,  for Betsy Devos”   

Throw The Fake Trump Bitch Out”  I liked it...

Today, President Donald Trump and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released their proposed budget for the 2019 fiscal year. The T-RUMP administration’s budget proposal for this year makes strikingly similar drastic cuts to the administration’s fiscal year 2018 proposal, which represented the most devastating funding cuts to the US Department of Education since Ronald Reagan’s presidency.  

Money For The Rich, None For The Poor Or Their Education

How They Found This Bitch, A Contribution…

She with T-Rump will pass the good life of the rich to the burden of the future middle class if there is one.  She needs to be replaced, gone, forgotten about, removed, exterminated before any one kid in this country loses out because of her.

Dear Friends, Parents, Followers, Voters, People who think and Judge rationally without malice, Herd or Cult thinking and do not suffer from Crainial-Rectal Dyslexia or its common slang “ Sh*t For Brains” so prevalent and acute in the T-RUMP Cabinet…

Just a reminder that Betsy DeVos never attended a public school, public college or university.  She attended secular “ Jesus is King” schools and has no experience in the public domain. She holds no graduate degree or professional licensure’s.  

She has never published a single piece of peer-reviewed quantitative research in her life. She has no training in education or sociology at all and with her qualifications might not be hired as kitchen help or school maintenance like toilets and garbage.

Her level of education is lower than Public School teachers require even to teach Kindergarten.  And she would not be considered any school position because she is, in pure actuality unqualified in the United States.

Just think, she’s trying to make life and death calls for your kids….

just another T-RUMP-teer scumbird brought in to the cesspool….
