President-elect Donald Trump will nominate Michigan philanthropist and chair of the education organization American Federation of Children Elisabeth ‘Betsy’ DeVos to be his secretary of education.

Trump called his pick “a brilliant and passionate education advocate.”

” “Under her leadership we will reform the U.S. education system and break the bureaucracy that is holding our children back so that we can deliver world-class education and school choice to all families,” the president-elect said in a statement.

DeVos is a former chair of the Michigan Republican Party who has never worked in public education. Her children attended private Christian schools. As the chairwoman of American Federation of Children, she is a proponent of the school choice movement, which calls for vouchers that allow families to use federal funds to cover the cost of education at private schools. She is also in favor of charter schools, but not of state regulation of them. Michigan’s charter schools are among the least regulated in the country, thanks to the DeVos family influence, Chalkbeat reported.

“There are a lot of schools that are doing poorly and charter authorizers do not seem to be taking the necessary actions to either improve performance or close those underperforming charters,” current US Secretary of Education John King toldChalkbeat about Michigan in October.

If confirmed, DeVos would replace King, who was confirmed in March 2016.

Although Trump has vocally stated his opposition to the Common Core curriculum ‒ shared learning standards adopted by most states ‒ DeVos says she supports “high standards, strong accountability, and local control,” but is opposed to how the curriculum got turned into “a federalized boondoggle.” However, she is on the board of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, a group founded by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush that promotes both school choice and Common Core.

DeVos met with Trump on Saturday in New Jersey, and the president-elect’s team said that the conversation “focused on the Common Core mission, and setting higher national standards and promoting the growth of school choice across the nation,”according toEducation Week.

Her brother is Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, a notorious mercenary company. Her father-in-law, Richard DeVos, co-founded Amway ‒ a multi-level marketing company that mainly sells health, beauty and home care products ‒ and also owns the Orlando Magic basketball team in Florida.

In 1980, the Department of Education was spun off from the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, which was created in 1953. Its mission is “to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access.”

Agencies under its purview include Federal Student Aid, the Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, and several White House initiatives. Notable secretaries of education include William Bennett (1985-1988), now Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tennessee; 1991-1993) and Arne Duncan (2009-2016). The secretary of education is 16th in the presidential line of succession.

The National Education Association decried the nomination, arguing that DeVos “has consistently pushed a corporate agenda.”

      “Who Is Behind the Privatization of Public Education?”

      2009-08-18 by Anne Zerrien-Lee

      [http://www.laprogressive.com/political-issues/who-is-behind-the-privatization-of-public-education]:

      Greedy corporate interests that are politically well-connected, that’s who. Just as our health care system has been crippled by insurance companies that deny treatment so they can divert medical care dollars to generate corporate profit, our public education system has been targeted by corporate bandits that are increasingly successful at siphoning off education funding for their own profit. They are in fact destroying public education in order to grab the tax dollars that support it. This did not happen overnight.
      First it was necessary to destroy the reputation of public schools and the teachers who give their heart and soul to the young people of our nation. So, while everyone was giving lip service to the idea that “children are our future” public schools have been starved for funding and teachers (and our unions) have been bashed at every opportunity.
      The next nail in the coffin was spurious testing. Remember No Child Left Behind? Wonderful slogan, bad public policy. It has given us robotic scripted curriculums, endless “periodic” tests, high-stakes one-shot assessments that are culturally biased and that fail to adequately measure what students really know, and an entire industry that scores the idiotic assessments after teachers give them. All of that siphons off public education dollars while schools are starved of resources they really need and students miss out on the true joy of learning.
      Schools that “fail” the worthless assessments are forced to give public funds to largely unregulated “tutoring services” that are supposed to provide remedial instruction formerly given after school or on Saturdays by classroom teachers. The tutoring company diverts a portion of that public funding for its own profit. Schools with high numbers of English language learners are most likely to “fail” since many students are taught and tested in a language they have not had time to master (ignoring common sense as well as research that invalidates that approach.) Then those schools can be reconstituted under NCLB – turned over to a charter operator who can fire all the teachers and abolish union contracts that might have protected any teacher brave enough to speak out against abrogation of students’ and families’ rights, higher class sizes, pay cuts or loss of benefits. Union-busting is profitable for the corporations.

  2. the day of announcement we wiki HER & surprise first though was wow when Seek found out about the brother sad haha

  3. she’s most likely a dominionist. bad news.

    • You called that one xxx…

      Many AmWay downlines–in particular the Dexter Yager downline–are known to promote specific types of dominion theology popular in neopentecostal circles, in particular within the Assemblies of God. This should probably not be shocking; quite a lot of Diamonds in AmWay are known to be members of the Assemblies of God and/or the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship International. Notable Assemblies Diamond-level AmWay members include John Ashcroft and Doug Wead, both of whom have had very close links with George W. Bush; Wead in particular largely coached Bush in regards to “learning to speak dominionist-ese” and largely introduced Bush to dominionist leaders. (Of particular note, Ashcroft is very influential in Assemblies of God circles; his father is founder of Chi Alpha, an Assemblies “fraternity front” targeting college-age students.)

      Multiple persons who have left AmWay have reported heavy pressure to convert to dominionist and specifically neopentecostal forms of faith in Business Motivational Organisations; in other words, there is a very strong possibility that AmWay may in and of itself be used as a front to recruit people into dominionist churches. Likewise, there is considerable evidence that AmWay in large part may be promoted as a type of “MLM affinity fraud” within Assemblies of God churches in particular–hence the two groups are essentially acting as “co-recruiters”, the Assemblies recruiting from AmWay downlines and AmWay recruiting from Assemblies churches. (It is of note that AmWay is often promoted by FGBMFI members as a “Christian Business Opportunity” to audiences in dominionist churches and is very, very actively promoted as part of the “parallel economy”–specifically as a “Christian alternative” to Proctor and Gamble, as noted below.) It is of particular note that often Diamonds linked with neopentecostal dominionist groups are quite high up in the hierarchies of both church and AmWay (for example, Diamonds who are deacons or even assistant ministers in churches).

    • If you’ve watched any television at all since the holidays, you might have wondered why a company called Amway Global ran so many commercials. Were these ads for the same company that has, over the years, been widely accused of running a pyramid scheme, paid nearly $20 million in fines in a Canadian criminal fraud case, and whose image with the public in recent years soured faster than a carton of cottage cheese in the sun?

    • Thank you Isabel, I appreciate this.

      • In that video he mentions that the founder(?) of the dominionist theology Hillary Clinton says she loves him (founder) and he was a good mentor to her.

        thanks for posting that video

        • Hey there Adirondack I thought I would FTM on the fee for Hilary’s love…

          http://www.educationviews.org/trump-education-chief-pick-betsy-devos-pro-common-core-family-donated-clinton-foundation/

          According to a WMP analysis of Clinton Foundation records, the DeVos family donated between $60,000-$130,000.

          The Doug and Maria DeVos Family Foundation donated between $50,000-$100,000.

          The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation donated between $10,000-$25,000

          Dave DeVos donated between $1,000-$5,000.

          Bloomberg also reported in July of 2015 that former President Bill Clinton “often earned higher speech fees, especially abroad.

          Amway paid him $700,000 for a February 2013 speech in Japan.”

          Note: Speech arranged while Hillary was Secretary of State. The fee was just shy of THREE QUARTERS OF A MILLION DOLLARS!!!!

          • Brace yourself for big bang

            • That was part of a headline act at an event in Osaka Japan.  Bill joined Jenifer Lopez and Doug Devos on stage at a Amway convention.

              What strange bedfellows Doug Devos and Bill Clinton make on the same stage based on political ideologies. The Amway/Devos empire has supported pro-Republican/anti-Democrat rhetoric with millions upon millions of contributions.  Amway organizations have long promoted Republican ideals from their Amway podiums. In past times Bill Clinton himself has been villanized by Amway leaders and speakers. One of which has been Dexter Yager who is reported to have outed Hillary Clinton as a lesbian.

              $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

              During the Clinton presidency, Congress granted Amway a

              huge tax break which Bill Clinton signed into law in one of the more

              shameful acts of his presidency.

              $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

              After the Japanese Amway Rally appearance, it was rumored by Amway cult adherents in the U.S. and elsewhere that Bill Clinton had become a Amway ‘business owner’ himself. Although, not true, it wouldn’t surprise me that this rumor has been used to help sell the Amway opportunity to prospective recruits. Laughably, the rumor has spawned comedic Amway/Quixtar business myths.

  7. I hate mercs as much as the next guy, and I’ve met a few in my time.
    But I can’t hang that at her door. I’m not responsible for my brother’s actions, & neither is she.
    Looking up her biography, she’s clearly qualified for the job, and seems to be an advocate for school choice, which would break up the indoctrination stranglehold the left has on our children. And while there was a time I would be against allowing parents to use tax money for their own selected schools, after seeing the false, anti-white history they teach at public schools now, and the the way they push perversion and degeneracy as somehow being “normal” (and many times on children as young as kindergarten age), I’m all for a parent’s ability to get their child the hell out of those public cesspools if they possibly can.
    The insanity being visited on our children by public school indoctrination is no less than Bolshevik in nature, as they attempt to raise up generations of citizens that refuse to fight for their own rights, see the government as all-powerful, and create a servile atmosphere that sees ridiculous antics emerge, such as children being suspended for eating their pop-tarts into the vague shape of a pistol.
    It is very past time to destroy the public school monopoly that has been so abused by the Stalinist left, and has so abused and misinformed our currently ill-educated children.

    • dominionists are delusional warmongers. sure, kids will have a choice of which school to go and learn christian lies from. but when hubris-filled warmongers start a war because ‘god told me so’ the school goes up in flames just like everything else.

      this is trump’s penny pritzker.

      i suppose we’re in for 4/8 years of delusional ‘conservatives’ telling us trump can do no wrong, just like we heard the same about obama for the last 8 years. one of the c-levels at my office told me she was going to miss obama because “8 years and not one scandal!”

      • That meme image of no scandals comes up on my Facebook every few months. Just on the their private lives we have the weed smoking daughter..I won’t bother listing Barry’s fuck ups.

        • *cough*bombing countries that have done nothing to you*cough*

            • The U.S. has invaded or attacked more countries than the German Nazi’s did in WWII. The result has been a bankrupt economy since Viet-Nam actually since the civil war.. Aide to education is at an all time low, our bridges are falling down, we do not have a high speed rail system and our social security retirement benefits are a joke compared to the rest of the industrialized world, and we still do not have a national health care plan like the rest of the industrialized world that has had it since 1889 under Germany’s Bismarck.

              When a small country like Germany can figure out a way to pay for national health care and today they are considered by top economists as one of the very best nation in the world to live in are we to believe stingy right wing congressmen who are nothing more than prostitutes of the rich that we too cannot afford to take care of are own people right here in the U.S. ?

              Has it every occurred that if we got the hell out of the Middle East they would have no reason to attack us?

    • It is very past time to destroy the public school monopoly that has been so abused by the Stalinist left, and has so abused and misinformed our currently ill-educated children.

      The state of our public school SYSTEM is deplorable, I agree. If we follow the money the solution proposed forces us to consider the following:

      “OK, let’s boil this down to a short version: redirecting federal funds toward school vouchers and privatization will lead to wealthy investors turning schools into profit centers for themselves, sort of like the catastrophe of private prisons, but a million times more destructive to what’s left of America. Overly dramatic? We’ll see. As for the DeVos family… it doesn’t get any worse than these crackpot religious fanatics.”

      http://downwithtyranny.blogspot.com/2016/11/betsy-devos-end-of-american-public.html

      The children in my public school system bring a $7,000.00 bounty on their heads paid by our federal taxes. NYS charges an additional school tax regardless of your parental status. I paid $28,900 in 2014 for property taxes;$18,200 went to the school tax. It broke me down over time.

      I grew more resentful each year and felt complicit in the non education afforded the children plus their moral demise.Further burdened by the need to send both daughters to private schools for a decent education and then only to find the Stalinist Left at the wheel there to.

      The biggest concern I have is two fold 1) how are we going to maintain the public schools if say one half to two thirds jump ship? Let’s guess…state and local taxes raised to offset the lack of federal funds? Most importantly what about the a good sized portion of the vulnerable children left behind?

      I think the long term affects of not fixing the problems on a state and local level will be far worse than we can possibly imagine.

      • Your taxes lead me to believe your a man of means…start your own school.
        And with private schools you have competition, far more than you have with privatized prisons. Schools will be chosen based on curriculum, morality adherence, and results. And with a “free” public school to fall back on, the public schools will find themselves in the same competitive markets, and losing students & income with every libtard degeneracy they try to push. They will have to reform, or they will not thrive.
        Parents will finally have control over the curriculum their children are subjected to, without federal (((interference))).

        • “They will have to reform, or they will not thrive. Parents will finally have control over the curriculum their children are subjected to, without federal (((interference))).” I sincerely hope you are right Scorch Dearth.

          One of my daughter’s live in a Vermont town that has offered vouchers for quite some time. Awesome private day school in their town of 500. my daughter home schools her two children non christian curriculum, other folks have chosen schools that are quite a trek for the kiddos and a central public school an hour away, curious now of its status.

          I would relish the thought of pioneering a private school but I am far to controversial, I would have to buy their vouchers and offer a free boarding school.

          Incidentally, I am not a man of means. I don’t even own a man of means. I am woman.

          • kek
            My apologies, ma’am.
            But if you’re paying the taxes you say, in my neck of the woods, you’re very wealthy.
            I guess the trick is to make your money in regions where things are expensive (& thus reap higher wages), but live in regions where things are cheap.
            But I still believe our differences can be accommodated with school choice. For instance, if I gained political power in this circumstance, I would turn all public schools into military schools, with the emphasis on discipline and civic duty. And there would be no discussion of degenerate subjects at all, much less any instruction on “tolerating” them.
            Would you not prefer, under these circumstances, to be able to pull your children out of my schools & place them in schools of your choosing?
            And if my methods be out of touch with the will of the general population, would not those parents also pull their children from my schools?…until I had lost so much funding that I would be forced to change my curriculum, or fold?

            • No apology required sir kek, standard presupposition in this stratosphere. Understand this, I do not disagree with you, I don’t believe them.

            • Why should Turkish cleric Fethullah Gülen operate charter schools on U.S. Military bases?

              BY ROBERT R. AMSTERDAM 2629 Shares

              A secretive Islamic movement is trying to infiltrate the U.S. military by establishing and operating publicly-funded charter schools targeted toward children of American service personnel.

              That charge may sound like a conspiracy theory from the lunatic fringe, but it is real and it is happening right now. The most immediate threat is in Nevada, where Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas (CASLV) is currently negotiating with the United States Air Force to locate a charter school at Nellis Air Force Base, with classes starting this fall.

              What is not widely known is that CASLV is part of a nationwide organization of charter schools and other businesses headed by Islamic cleric Fethullah Gülen, a reclusive but influential Imam living under self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania to avoid criminal prosecution in his native Turkey.

              http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/foreign-policy/274675-why-should-turkish-cleric-fethullah-gulen-operate-charter

              • The Wall Street Journal reported in 2016 that around 150 U.S. charter schools were tied to the Gülen movement, “ranging from networks in Texas, Illinois and Florida to stand-alone academies in Maryland.”[54] The Journal noted that like other charter schools “blacks and Hispanics in underserved neighborhoods” made up the majority of the student body, with common themes including “an emphasis on math and science education, Turkish language classes and sponsored trips to Turkey.”[54] Hendrick noted that in the upheaval following the 2016 Turkish coup attempt, proposed new charter schools and charters up for renewal “that are run by Turkish-Americans and are said to be connected with the cleric” could run into increased opposition, as the Turkish government has sought “to bring down Mr. Gulen through U.S. charter schools they claim are connected to him.”[54]

                Gülen and Pope John Paul II
                The movement’s avowal of interfaith dialogue grew out of Gülen’s personal engagement in interfaith dialogue, largely inspired by the example of one of his influences, Said Nursi. Gülen has met with leaders of other religions, including Pope John Paul II, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew I, and Israeli Sephardic Head Rabbi Eliyahu Bakshi-Doron.[55] Gülen advocates cooperation between followers of different religions as well as those practicing different forms of Islam (such as Sunnism or Alevism).

                Gülen’s call for interfaith dialogue has influenced three generations of movement followers.[52]

                Gülen movement participants have founded a number of institutions across the World that promote interfaith and intercultural dialogue activities. Notable among these are the Journalists and Writers Foundation in Istanbul, the Rumi Forum in Washington and the Indialogue Foundation in New Delhi.

                • erdogan blamed gulen movement for the false flag coup earlier this year..

                  • I suppose thats as good of an excuse as any…there on the same side, no? lol The subterfuge is as thick as pea soup.

                    http://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/analysis/israel-rising-recep-tayyip-erdogan-false-flag-coup-and-the-rise-of-the-new-sultanate/2016/07/18/

                    Obama quickly mumbled support for Erdogan. This, even as Erdogan is holding troops USA troops hostage until the United States extradites Muhammed Fethullah Gülen, the Turkish preacher Erdogan claims is behind the coup.

                    It is too early to see what Obama will do, but most probably nothing. Afterall, Turkey is a NATO ally and is needed as a forward base to bomb ISIS. Look for Gulen to be extradited or this to be settled quietly behind the scenes.

                    Erdogan has always been focused on spearheading political Islam at a regional level. The question isn’t whether he wants to be a sort of neo-sultan, but how. I think we have just seen the first steps in Erdogan’s strategy.

              • Gee whiz thanks Mr. ERDOGAN

                With the backing of the Turkish government, Amsterdam also has focused on a network of about 150 publicly funded U.S. charter schools started by Gulen’s followers

      • SMC, “The biggest concern I have is two fold 1) how are we going to maintain the public schools if say one half to two thirds jump ship?”

        I just read this today. Thought it was interesting. According to already existing programs, school choice (vouchers) save money for local school districts and state level budgets. There is an increased public fund, in the millions, for public education in places that have school choice. The main factor is private schools cost less money per student. So what private schools draw from public funds is less than what those public schools use per student. Taxes remain the same (or increase) yet with less students in public schools. Therefore more money remains in the public education fund for public education to use per student in the public education system.

        Public spending on public school students (per student) increased in cities that have school choice ( https://www.acsi.org/legal-legislative-pages/school-choice-pages/frequently-asked-questions-about-school-choice ):

        ACSI, “When Milwaukee’s school choice program was founded in the 1990-1991 school year, its public schools spent $6,316 per student; by 2003-2004 that amount had risen to $10,375. Cleveland’s public school spending rose from $6,616 in 1996-1997, when its choice program began, to $10,420 in 2003-2004.”

        Tons of money is saved:
        “A 2007 study by Friedman Foundation senior fellow Susan Aud confirmed that school choice saves money for state budgets and for public schools. She found that from 1990 to 2006, all existing school choice programs together saved a net total of $22 million for state budgets and $422 million for local public-school districts.”

        More studies:
        “A 2005 Clemson University study found that even after accounting for fixed costs, a proposed voucher program for South Carolina-offering $4,000 to $4,600, compared with public spending of $8,300-would save $594 million over its first five years.”

        “A 2004 Utah State University study found that a proposed school choice program in Utah would save between $26 million and $144 million every year, even after schools’ fixed costs were taken into account.”

        “A 2005 Friedman Foundation study found that tax-funded scholarships in New Mexico would save $63 million over ten years.
        A 2004 joint study by the Friedman Foundation and the Josiah Bartlett Center found that a proposed voucher program in New Hampshire would save $9 million annually.”

        The biggest opponent to school choice appears to be teacher unions who use such means as taking private schools to court often and try to lobby for regulations on private schools.

        • I showed similar information when I petitioned for transportation to my childrens school. A near empty public school bus literally drove past their school. I often drove behind it for over an hour each way. I was told they lost 14,000 a year from an over burdened budget regardless that I was still charged school tax that far exceeded the 14,000. Since there were no vouchers, I paid tuition also. They insisted a major portion of our taxes went to fund the nyc public schools a 100 miles away. I may have been just given the bums rush in a small town but regardless I withdrew my petition. They were so nasty, I was concerned the girls would feel made to sit at the back of the bus.

        • I so hope it all can be straightened around. Certainly on a local level a strong presence of taxpayers concerned about education and the right for all children to be treated fairly will be necessary. Not like me, I finally walked away.

  8. […] via Trump taps Michigan philanthropist Betsy DeVos to be secretary of education..her brother is Erik Pri… […]

  9. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  10. (Betsy DeVos was Bush’s #1 most generous single contributor)

    “People Like Us Must be Stopped” (1998)

    This is what Betsy DeVos said concerning radical right GOP big money financers like herself and Dick. From a great piece in Mother Jones:
    Seeing as Dick DeVos is gearing up for a run at Jennifer Granholm’s Governor spot, we thought it might be nice to dredge up an old text bite archive straight from the mouth of Betsy DeVos, who served for a time as the Chair of the Michigan Republican State Committee:

    “I know a little something about soft money, as my family is the largest single contributor of soft money to the national Republican Party,” Betsy DeVos wrote in an op-ed for the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call. “I have decided, however, to stop taking offense at the suggestion that we are buying influence. Now I simply concede the point. They are right. We do expect some things in return.”

    “We expect to foster a conservative governing philosophy consisting of limited government and respect for traditional American virtues. We expect a return on our investment; we expect a good and honest government. Furthermore, we expect the Republican Party to use the money to promote these policies, and yes, to win elections.

    People like us must surely be stopped.”

    • What’s good for the goose…
      You cannot expect to win if you allow the opponent to cheat, but you will not.
      The best you can do is take over, then reform campaign finance so NOBODY can cheat.
      This will work for as long as it take the opposition to learn new methods of cheating…

    President-elect Trump Just Added Another Evangelical to his Cabinet

    Evangelicals are going to make quite a mark on the United States of America beginning Jan. 20, 2017.
    Three of the first four Cabinet-level appointments President-elect Donald Trump has announced were handed to evangelicals. And now, his fifth appointment goes to another evangelical Christian.

    “DeVos, 58, graduated from Calvin College, a Christian Reformed Church school…” Not a good College nor denomination (CRC). Both used be bastions of orthodox Christianity, but during the late 20th Century and very early 21st Century was overrun by Liberal Theology. Orthodox local churches left the CRC and joined other denominations.

    Also, this article points out that Betsy Devos was an elder at Rob Bell’s megachurch. Rob Bell is bad news. He was part of the Emerging Church Movement, which has waned. Rob Bell no longer speaks there. Last I heard he moved to California and is best of friends with Oprah.

    • i think this credit to jared is a bit to much..

      Jared Kushner was three blocks south, high up in his own skyscraper, at 666 Fifth Avenue, where he oversees his family’s Kushner Companies real estate empire.

      • it’s a hell of an address

        • It is not Moscow which will impose its will on the democracies but New York, not the “Comintern” but the “Capintern” on Wall Street.” (Griffin, 269)

          The Red Symphony,” based on the 1938 NKVD interrogation of Illuminati insider Christian Rakovsky, is definitive proof that world events “are made to happen.” As an agent of the Masonic Jewish central banking cartel, Rakovsky convinced Stalin to negotiate the future Ribbentrop-Molotov pact resulting in the partition of Poland and Britain’s declaration of war against Germany. He said the US would engineer an attack (like Pearl Harbour) to help the USSR after a German invasion. (Griffin 267)

          Moreover, he confirmed that the goal of the Masonic Jewish central bankers is worldwide Communism, i.e. The New World Order. “There is only one aim, one single aim: the triumph of Communism. It is not Moscow which will impose its will on the democracies but New York, not the “Comintern” but the “Capintern” on Wall Street.” (Griffin, 269)

    • Anyone interested in the truth will be shocked by the way American social
      engineers have systematically gone about destroying the intellect of millions
      of American children for the purpose of leading the American people into a
      socialist world government controlled by behavioral and social scientists.

      • The significance of the charter school/school choice issue is NOT related strictly to educational choice. It is related to acceptance of a communist system of governance where decisions are made by appointed, not elected officials. Appointed officials cannot be removed from office by voters/taxpayers. —Charlotte Iserbyt, January, 2011

        “Just this one time I agree with NEA President Lily Garcia when she stated, “She (DeVos) has consistently pushed a corporate agenda to privatize, de-professionalize and impose cookie-cutter solutions to public education.’’

        DeVos is EVERYTHING Donald Trump stated during the campaign process that is wrong with America – she is an ultra-wealthy heiress who uses her money to game the system and push a special-interest agenda that is opposed by the majority of voters.”

        There is BILLIONS of dollars of fraud being shown in the recently released report by the Office of the Inspector General of the Federal Department of Education AS THE RESULT OF MASSIVE FRAUD AND MANIPULATION and this report does not cover the fraud and corruption debt by all the Charter schools.

  18. Betsy Prince Devos is Dutch and heavily influenced by Abraham Kuyper, the father of Pillarization. It sounds lovely but it appears to beautifully divide people for easy control.

    Better wake the…up and shake the shackles while we still can.

  21. “philantrohpist”. wow. Born a billionaire. Making jokes about free lunch for hungry children. Unable to answer basic questions about public school policy. Supports the gentrification of public schools. Amazing. This is the new world order. You can’t make this stuff up. How embarrassing to live in this country right now.
