    Another POS that Trump added to his cesspool while the taxpayer foots the bill for CORPORATE SOCIALISM.
    BLUEXIT
    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    If I didn't listen I wouldn't know how dumb she is. This article was written only two months after she was in office.

    1. “Confusion” over IDEA
    DeVos raised red flags with many educators, advocacy groups, and parents of special-needs children when she displayed confusion over the federal IDEA law, which requires public schools to provide reasonable accommodations for students with special needs. She said the matter should be left to the states and seemed unaware of the federal requirement even when Virginia’s Sen. Tim Kaine persisted with questioning during her confirmation hearing. She also would not directly answer questions pertaining to whether all schools, including public charters and private schools, should adhere to IDEA requirements. When questioning returned to IDEA later in the hearing, DeVos told Sen. Maggie Hassan (N.H.) that she “may have confused” IDEA and that she would be mindful of special-needs students’ needs if confirmed as education secretary.

    2. Declaring HBCUs as “pioneers” of school choice
    When President Donald Trump signed an executive order to support historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), DeVos issued a statement noting that HBCUs are “real pioneers” of school choice. That comment didn’t go over so well, with many criticizing her for her word choice and noting that HBCUs were established due to racial segregation. Trump’s Oval Office meeting with HBCU presidents was cut short, few had an opportunity to speak, and participants and observers noted that the executive order stops short of allocating funding for HBCUS.

    3. DeVos stumbled when discussing the long-standing debate over measuring proficiency or measuring growth. She used the definition of growth to describe proficiency–something Minnesota Sen. Al Franken was quick to point out, noting his surprise that she didn’t seem to know the issues surrounding the debate. Proponents of growth say it is a more useful measure because it tracks individual progress over time, while proficiency supporters say all students should work toward a common level of mastery or proficiency.

    4. Teachers in “receive mode”
    A Washington, D.C. school jumped to the defense of its educators after DeVos noted that, upon visiting the school, teachers seemed to be in “receive mode” waiting to be told what to do. In comments after her visit, DeVos said that this mindset will not bring about success for students. Once Jefferson Middle School Academy staff became aware of her comments, a series of tweets defending teachers and administrators followed–the first of which noted that the educators were “about to take [DeVos] to school.” The school is one of the fastest-improving schools in the D.C. system.

    5. Virtual charter school graduation rates
    Inn confirmation discussions focusing around virtual charter schools, of which she is a supporter, DeVos mentioned a handful of schools with graduation rates at or above 90 percent. The problem? It appears that DeVos got those figures from a report produced by a for-profit company behind most of the schools. She also was once an investor in the company. The figures she cited were greatly inflated.

    Bonus:

    6. A Twitter tangle
    The Twitter universe descended on DeVos and showed no mercy or hesitation in correcting her grammar as she tweeted from the Inauguration proceedings. Many users noted that they relied on their public school education to correct her tweet.

    Devos is just another Trumpy choice whose function is to help the wealthy charter school owners get more profits and less accountability. She is from a super-rich family that started Amway. They have managed to keep a pyramid scheme running for decades. They love people, that is why they cheated the sellers.

    Reclaimin' my time? Is he channeling Auntie Maxine? And you think this makes DeVos look bad? Talking over her not allowing her to even speak? If a republican did this they would instantly be labeled a misogynistic piece of shit. But of course when you're a liberal, it's different.
    Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent

    You're confused. You didn't like the answer, therefore, you deem the question as having not been answered.

    Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. Albert Einstein

    America's future is bright, not white

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment
