Well.............No. I Don't Agree.

First of all...........ha ha ha ha ha ha.............Betsy Devos is the LAST person I'd trust about education, ha ha ha ha.  Fuck you bitch, ha ha ha.............did you go to public school?  Did your children?  No, chuckle, ha ha ha ha ha ha..............then shut the fuck up.  No offense, but, chuckle, unless you have a clue about what affects millions of people, mostly children, be quiet, sit down. 

I've watched Art and Music and cursive writing and seen "student teachers" disappear from schools.  But, eye roll, athletic departments thrive.  We don't NEED alternative schools or vouchers if SCHOOLS taught what was needed, period. 

I started kindergarten in 1975.  I LEARNED and am still aggravating people because I am not stupid, was taught to think for myself, cognitive deductions...............gasp............taught in a tiny school in a tiny state.  GRIN. 

I was taught that scholarships came from being smart.  I was NEVER told it had ANYTHING to do with my race, my gender, my religion or anyting else, just.................how smart are you?  Are you WORTH a scholarship?  Yes, I was.  Four years, academic scholarship. 

It IS just that simple.  I was, hell, I am.  Don't come at me with anything else, that's ridiculous.

    You missed going ape-shit over free education for illegals, “refugees”, baby terrorists, any other anti-American puke that thinks they have a ‘human right’ to get into the US any way they can.
    Don’t know anyone who is thrilled about Billionaire Devos who has enough money to not be ignored by any political Republican hack. I consider the socialist driven NEA as public enemy #1.

      True. Three weeks ago, I called the school that is three blocks from our house about pre-K for our 4 1/2 year old son. I was told it would cost me $1950.00 for 9 months, UNLESS……sigh………..he could not speak or understand the English language, then, yes, it would be FREE.

              Thank you for the information. My one semester of Spanish in 7th grade in 198? did not stick. Hell, at that point, I’d never met a Spanish speaking person.

    I’m not sure if this is about you or education, but..
    SHOCK: Zero students at six Baltimore schools test proficient in English or math
    BALTIMORE, Md. – Baltimore schools are failing students on serious scale, and it’s not for lack of spending on high-priced administrators and other school employees.

    Not a single student in five of the city’s high schools and one middle school tested up to state standards in English and math, an astonishingly embarrassing statistic that’s infuriating some parents, Fox Baltimore reports.

    “That’s absurd to me,” Janel Nelson, mother of Frederick Douglass High School senior Navon Warren, told the news station. “That’s your teacher’s report card, ultimately.”

    Based on Warren’s analogy, teachers at five schools received a zero on the latest round of standardized testing: Booker T. Washington Middle School, Douglass High School, Achievement Academy at Harbor City, New Era Academy, Excel Academy at Francis M. Wood High School, and New Hope Academy.

    According to a Fox Baltimore investigation:

      My education was great. I’m just damned sure my kids won’t get the same one I did.

      Why? I was, still am “proficient” in English. It’s the basics. I will admit, come junior year, Trigonometry kicked my ass and I didn’t take another math class after that because it wasn’t required. But………….English? Why?
