What propaganda? She is literally on tape saying she wants to "advance God's kingdom" through education.


And Obama is on record saying he and his supporters are "doing God's work."

Big whoop.




“We’re going to make a big push these last few weeks,” Obama told OFA volunteers and officials. “I can talk, my team can talk here in Washington, but it’s not going to make as much of a difference as if you are out there making the case. The work you’re doing is God’s work. It is hard work.”

Are the children/teens who've been in the Obama/Dunkin pipeline the past 7 years, smarter and better equipped to face the world, than those who preceded them? What is the measure used to gauge that?


America's public schools are no longer about reading, writing,
and arithmetic-- they're all about indoctrinating the next generation
of young minds into thinking the way the establishment wants
them to think.



Bravo, burdman. The biggest elite- manufactured stumbling block to
fixing ANYTHING wrong with America is America's educational system...
and the subversion/ sabotage of it with the NEA. Betsy is all in to
change that, and everybody in the Establishment is piling on.

It's obvious and quite telling that Trump's picks for Cabinet in general
are being met with the brand of most times baseless vitriol-- they
indicate a resistance to people that will cause positive change for a change.

Between you, me and Charlotte Iserbyt; that malady boiled down a long
time ago to three words that mean everything, and nobody admits to :
communist change agents. I'll just watch in amusement as Trump takes
on planks of the Manifesto, and pray for his good health. He needs a few.

Remember how good things were before God was taken out of the public? Yeah, me too. My kids go to Sunday School and church every Sunday to learn about Jesus, so taking Him out of schools, along with prayer, didn't effect them. I would assume that if parents didn't want their kids learning about Jesus or God in school then they will tell their kids not to listen. It's not the end of the world.

History in the making!!
The first time ever a cabinet nominee was so unpopular and incapable of getting the sufficient votes where the Vice President had to step in to nudge her over the edge!



That's what happens when the losing political party is a group full of adults acting like kids. How ironic, eh?

Some people need to do their research before admonishing others.

Not you

Expect a slew of intense legal battles to preserve the integrity of our children's education.


WHAT INTEGRITY!?!?! Seriously man, how much integrity can a system which pumps out as many failures as American schools do and shields the adults responsible for those failures from ANY merit based job expectations have?


Agreed. The liberals have been screwing up. Add to that all of the false leftist indoctrination going on in schools and colleges...What a joke! Really, mickey mouse could do a better job.

And to think, it would not have been possible if the Dems had not changed the rule from 60 votes neeeded to 51.

"This is what democracy looks like!"

Bottom line, the left had decades to improve our school system.

And they failed.

You ALL have no room to complain.

Really.

It just makes you look silly.

Considering DeVos wants federal funds going to religious schools and you're defending her I took it to mean that you had no issue with that.

They may want to curb their enthusiasm and realize they're also now leaving blank checks on the table for new ones teaching ideologies they don't support, like madrassas. All thanks to their golden girl's misguided Dominionist crap.

God forbid kids get smarter over the next four years.

WE CAN'T HAVE THAT!

To those throwing a fit.


Agreed, but who is going to deprogram the teachers?

It would be so entertaining watching her crash and burn if it didn't also mean f***ing over our children's education.


Your teachers are right now out there keeping busy inciting violence and murder. Something tells me if your party had won that is exactly what it would have meant.

The don't need to teach god per say, They do need to teach morals. How to convince children and these adult children to follow morals without god is difficult

She funded a "conversion therapy" charity to the tune of 100M+ to pray the gay out of LGBT youth.

She said states should decide for themselves if they want to teach Special Ed kids.

She (falsely) claimed that Wyoming had guns in schools to protect against grizzly bears?? In defense of her position that guns should be in schools.

VOUCHERS...My issue with vouchers is it steals funds from public schools to make sending rich kids to private schools cheaper.

District X gets 1 Million in Federal Dollars for public schools. She takes 500K of that and gives it in the form of coupons to anyone who wants them if they want to attend the expensive private school in town. The Private school costs 10k per year, the coupon/voucher for rich kids pays for 6K of that 10k bill...and the poor kids couldn't afford the remaining 4k bill anyways.

That is how you take tax-payer money from public schools (defunding them and making them worse) and give it to rich families so they can pay a lot less for johnnies private school and maybe even save enough to buy that 2nd home in the Hamptons!

It's not that hard, this godless heathen has kids with morals good enough that the preacher from the church a block over praised us for it, fully knowing we're atheists.

Even he admits it's the people, not the deity, responsible. Take that for what it's worth.

Anyone getting rid of Common Core is a good pick. Then they can just retire.

Well, at least the amount of grizzly bear attacks at schools will be reduced.

You do know that a Republican was President before Pres. Obama?
Or do you not understand how many years "Decades" are?

Then again you unwittingly make a case for a failed education system in your post...
