Actually it was a nightmare when my daughter and son had to enter regular crappy schools in the state, and didn't have references to state history of any kind, they had to cram years of local history in two years in order to graduate.

What that tells you, they were way ahead of the rest of the students when it came to sciences, math and other major studies, but nothing on local history.

DOD schools are the best they concentrated in major subjects that matter.

I hope people refuse to work for her. And boycott everything she puts out.



But of course, it's all about the children...


It's definitely about the children for me.

She is about God and white privilege.





Keep telling yourself you're about the children, your past statement indicates that's not the case at all. I think we all know it's really about not getting your way and wanting people to protest/strike over it. Purely selfish, ego driven position in all ways, frankly.

As for her being about "God and white privilege" well, one of those doesn't exist and the other is something this world needs a whole lot more respect for so I certainly won't lose any sleep over her priorities as her system educates my two children.

I can tell you this much, the state I live in is one of the worst states when it comes to education at least on grade level.

The school system still does the black and white count, can you believe that.

I seem to recall the Christian Right throwing a massive fit when they were told that their taxes would help provide birth control. Were they being whiny little babies then?


Well yeah, why should we buy your birth control pills? Buy them yourself.

Pence the deciding vote. Of course this disaster would be confirmed.

Good thing the new people in government are actually concerned about children.





Is that the Joke of the Day?

More like the "Who's Who's" of who's in who's "money pocket".

I said I'd never homeschool. Reconsidering.

Totally FALSE . Michigan is already far better off as a result of the Trump administration being in play. DeVos will be no different. With their typical liberal combination of "lets put all the fires out with gasoline" and when that doesn't work out as it NEVER does, they follow up with, "we'll have a contest to see who can whine the loudest and blame those evil racist conservatives", the Dems have been ruining the state of Michigan forever. The ONLY reason why Detroit schools, and any of the rest of schools in and around Michigan are doing as poorly as they have been for the last 40 years, is solely due to the deeply entrenched Democrat''s socialist engineering platforms as far as the eye can see. They have exacerbated and grown every single problem they have ever attempted to address. Michigan, like the United States as whole, does not need more self serving business as usual politics or politicians.

That describes the public school system perfectly.

Especially in failed school districts that have big money thrown at them.

Same old rhetoric from you Anne in every thread regardless of the topic.

Why don't you come up with a point of view or argument why you feel this way? So we can debate like adults?

And no "because he's the Slum Lord" doesn't qualify

You have very selective reading then.

Before you go defending DeVos and bashing Democrats you may want to do some research. DeVos is from Michigan. The policies she wants to enact for the country as a whole were first enacted in Michigan. Primarily thanks to her lobbying. Since then things have gotten worse when it comes to education in Michigan. Especially in Detroit.

So before you go blindly defending everything God Emperor Trump does you want to get some background information first.

Sometimes the obvious is just plain obvious.

Who in public/non-religious education actually supports DeVos?

DeVos huge financial supporter of Trump.

So it is ok to step on religious rights for abortion and gay marriage but school is off limits? Something that could actually help the kids instead of kill or confuse them?

Because the schools might not encourage children to question their sexuality at 6 and fill their heads with lies about the "evil misogynistic white male patriarchy"?

You're no different than those people who take their kids out of school for saying the world is more than 6'000 years old.

My public grade school is amazing. Sure, parents are required to work with their kids. But, shouldn't they anyway?

Just keep her on the east coast.

Now, is Detroit's school problems really because of someone who donated LOTS and LOTS of money? Looks like the city and the state did not know how to spend the funds.
