Good morning & happy Thanksgiving.
While the president of the teacher's union is upset by Betsy DeVos, DJT's Secy of Ed -- a billionaire who has fought endlessly for school choice (charter schools & vouchers to compete with public ed), some are celebrating the selection.
While I think our current public education system (K-12) is basically bankrupt, I want to see it improved not decimated. OTOH, our HS grads are REALLY under-educated by comparison to the rest of the world. I would rather pay a good teacher $150k+ than hire another edu-crat.
In my town, when the Superintendent of Schools discusses education policy, I don't understand what she's talking about. It's all gobbledygook edu-speak which sounds good but means little.
Ike warned us about the military-industrial complex. No one warned us about the edu-industrial complex which is undoubtedly MORE important.
