Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. This entitled FUCKING IDIOT BITCH can't be a janitor. Somehow, this IGNORANT BITCH, is the head of our Education Department. Fucked up country.

  2. Our electoral system is decentralized. So why are we allowing the government to have centralized authority over our education system? This is the same government that spent us into a $21 trillion dollar deficit and shipped more than 170,000 of our sons and daughters to over 150 nations around the world. It also engaged us in a decades-long unconstitutional intervention in the Middle East, which has cost taxpayers trillions of dollars and the lives of millions.

  3. The teacher's Union dont give a rat's ass about individual students, it's all about their cushy jobs, summers off, and ridiculous pension benefits. To them everybody can go to hell they just want their money.

  4. The no child left behind doctrine of the school system has lowered the bar to the idiots level and has left the highly intelligent students in a sea of morons to compete…..

    Ted Knight said it best in the movie Caddy Shack …."The world needs ditch diggers too"

    By the way folks the dumbing down of America , the Gay Pride movement , the Socialist doctrines ate all part of a plan to destroy America ….and it would have succeeded if not for Trump , but sadly all President Trump has done is slow the plan down ….unless the President goes after the globalists in a very direct manner and takes them out with extreme prejudice , this farce of a system that they have implemented since the murder of Kennedy will eventually destroy America and it's great dream of all men are created equal under one God … Sadly that one God is being forced to judge us in s manner that the whole world will look upon and say ….forgive us Father for we have sinned , no more denial is coming in the form of God's supernatural wrath .

  5. Russia starts school at THREE YEARS ..we have meany kids who don't even speak English my grand parents spoke German and HAD to PAY for tutors before their children could go to pubic school!! Today we aIIow them to attend pubic schools not speaking or reading in English AND THE PARENTS ARE FUIENT IN ENGLISH BUT WANT THEIR CHILDREN TO TO SPEAK BOTH LANGUAGES AT OUR EXPENSE

  6. Pure Propaganda !!     this Imbecile with the rest of the Trimps, gutted the education system to give tax cuts to the super rich and accelerate the economic collapse the Con's are famous for.  (FACT: every conservative administration during the last 50 years has crashed the economy AND the Democrat have repaired it each time. reality baby)

  7. Unions collorate to directly to wages. I dont care either way, but union workers who dismantle their own unions only shoot themselves in the foot. I saw this first hand with my ex's dad. He worked in a manufacturing facility where he fought against his union and fast forward 4 years, he lost his house! LOL!

  8. The schools have been failing since the 50's. Start with putting teachers into classes that aren't leftists and then put in full curriculum in every grade level. Teach history!!! Students that need extra help learning, then supply it, fully. I started out with public school, but left it quickly when I saw what was happening within the classroom. I Home schooled both of my children. They are both successful, intelligent, well grounded in the rights and wrongs going on in this country. Get Common Core out of our schools and get back to basics with Real education and non-political teachers in the class room. They also need a qualified education in order to teach any grade level. Unlike what we have seen for years.

  9. Much respect to our great ancestors who chose death over slavery. Once you stop fearing death you can never be made a slave. And integration and the actions of the Moors was a joke. From July 2015 to July 2016 white people only made 5000 babies but their population is 198 million. Now we know why they made interracial marriages legal. They need Black People to help them make white babies. This is why you see interracial relationships being promoted every where. 150 to 250 white people every day from the opioid and alcohol addiction. By 2060 white men will be infertile. Why would Black People want to integrate with a DYING group of people that are headed for extinction??

  10. I like Betsy DeVos but I don't think her rambling generalities about vague notions of possible policies make a cogent argument for the necessity of continuing the Federal Department of Education.

  11. This woman knows f all about education. All the private schools she was in charge of performed worse than the public ones. She bought her position with her family's blood money. She has financial interest in student loan companies and then reduces loan protection for students that are ripped off by schools so she can make more money. A family computer server was found to be pinging both a Trump Co server and Deutsche bank. Fed investigators go to D Bank, and the server stops communicating before anyone had talked to the DeVos family. You and your brother should both be in a federal prison.

  12. Our teachers' unions are the biggest enemies for our kids. You can not fir bad teaches (including sexual predators)  at all in any way due to their union status.  In addition, our biggest enemies are lunatic, anti-American, pro-terrorist, pro-Jihadist, pro-illegal, socialist  open border, ignorant and arrogant democrats who are out of touch from reality. The second biggest enemies are the brain dead democrat voters who either born as ignorant or choose to be ignorant.

  13. Betsy DeVos has hired Democrat activists to push Common Core in resistant states. She's a wolf in sheep's clothing. She dines and travels in only Democrat circles. Even the New York Times did a 2017 article on her hires for top positions of Democrat activists, person in a homosexual marriage and a person aiding the "undocumented" to stay here. Is Trump aware??

    https://wtop.com/education/2018/03/betsy-devos-said-common-core-was-dead-its-not/

  14. Public Schools are a failure and the only thing kids are learning is how to beat the system. It's time to end the public schools and create small internet schools where students stay home and learn via the internet. We have the technology to do it. Kid's are learning bad behavior, getting bulled by not just student but by teachers, teachers have lost control of their schools and they can't no longer protect our children from violence, drugs and gangs. The strangle hold the teacher's union need's to be broken and we need to put our children in a safe environment and what is safer than their own home. We could by every child in America a computer system and one teacher could teach 500 students with no problem and get better results. It's time to move on from the antiquated school system and on to the future. Think of the money we would safe on buses, buildings, teachers pay, union hassles, politicians wouldn't need to fear a group union workers who demand more than they produce.

  15. End public schools. It would create jobs. More private schools will open as they would be in demand. Ends teacher unions. Offer grants and funding for families making under a certain amount.

  16. First get the Fluoride out of our water, tooth paste and dentists offices. Raise the average IQ by 5 points. Neurol toxins destroy the brain – Fluoride is a Neurol toxin.

  17. Public Schools are plagued with incompetent, lazy, intolerant, uneducated, arrogant and generally ignorant teachers thanks to the Unions. A lousy teacher most likely will never get fired for failing to teach adequately. I speak from personal experience.

  18. Poor Cabinet Secretary is trying hard not to state the real problem…. the Unions and the Federalizing of Schools, i.e. her job must go. Public Schools are run for the Teacher’s Unions. The teacher’s Unions run the Democratic Party. Betsy DeVos has become the favorite target of both.

  19. Teachers… the only job where you are not subjected to job standards or ability! You can be the best piece of shit teacher on the face of the earth and you’re going to get paid just like the greatest teacher!

  20. Of course we suck. We have cut the am out of money that is put in public schools . everything now is charter ,private, religious schools. None are an answer

  21. The parents are more responsible in those countries. Their societies have more enforced laws that make them safer and more pleasant for families. Jill Scotts mic routine would not have been allowed in those countries neither the D and P or cucumber contests. Also no mob rushing malls and no students hitting teachers.

  22. The teachers unions pretend to be interested in the quality of education of the students, but what they are really interested in is consolidating their own power and wealth, at the expense of the taxpayer. Anything that threatens their own interests (like vouchers) they call "bad for the students."

  23. If you think that more choice is the path forward then set education free. get government out and busineses in. This is just something most people will resist because they have been brought up to believe government = good and business = bad, despite 90% of the every day life is put together by businesses and its well working too. Get the government out.

  24. Unions no longer serve any purpose except to spread communism. If the teachers can't perform they should be fired. The department of education is not needed, fire them all and spend that money on the wall. Unions should be banned. They have been indoctrinating your children into communism they no longer teach.  Awake Yet America?

  25. Some sick brainwashed people on these comments, trust a billionaire to believe she gives a DAMN about educating Black and Brown citizens.
    you got teachers in Oklahoma teaching students 4 days a week because they don't have enough resources but yet big oil refineries is still getting you a subsidies for corporate welfare.
    you got teachers buying stuff for the classroom with their own money and not even making enough money and they still got to go in their own paychecks to bring stuff in the class to teach the students.
    This privatization of education is more $$$ for the rich. Finland is number #1 in education they are socialist Democratic Society that does not put their kids in college debt that they can't pay out for a lifetime nor do they limited$ resources to certain areas like America does on purpose.. Watch Michael Moore documentary where should we invade next interviewing finland's education system teachers and actually American teachers who went to teaching feeling cuz they gave up on the American education system setup to fail children .
    Do your research quit believe in the height

  26. They feminized education to have more women succeed by expanding the administrative state and paying artificial wages. They demonized manual labor and flooded the country with illegal aliens. Most city and county jobs go to women and they pay more than the private sector yet serve no true purpose. Extroverts learn differently than introverts. Extroverts need a proactive education instead of long lectures putting you to sleep.

  27. Love Betsy DeVos! Very smart lady. See Charlotte Isserby book of the paperwork she found when Reagan placed her at the head of the dept of edu.. That tells the story of what's really going on. The intentional dumbing down of American children.

  28. Our school system has consistently been made to look failing, the powers who be want them privatized. Betsy DeVos was hired because she is not a fan of public schools, she likes charter and religious schools. Betsy is going to have to explain why 9.2 billion dollars were taken out of our school system to make up for the huge tax cut trump and his rich congress members gave themselves!!

  29. BARBADOS are you FUCKING KIDDING ME. Ok I’m a fan of Rihanna but for the richest country in the world to be behind for a smaller, less populated country, and poorer country to succeed at that level while we continue to slow down as far as education is crazy.

  30. When the family unit is out of order all of society must follow.
    Meaning our capitalistic society is destroying the family, everyone is working their asses off to pay their bills and pay for their pleasures.

    The government and the corporations are sucking us dry. Fuck them all i say, throw out all the shit standing in our way.

  31. TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…TRUMP 2020…

  32. I agree GET RID OF TEACHERS UNIONS!!! I understand people say they have so many years experience ok but that doesn't mean everything I have a relative who is a better teacher than most teachers I have had at school just saying and that person is very well educated.

  33. Hell kids, and I am talking about college kids, these days, cannot even tell someone who is the Vice President of the U.S. or what is the capitol of the United States. This is not surprising. The U.S. Educational System is so bad there really is not an adjective that could adequately describe what is taking place in the public education system.

  34. The UK is also low on that list and that is because half of school pupils here now are from totally alien cultures and don't speak English . Twice as many students now but with the same money , most of the immigrants legal and illegal don't pay tax but do expect the UK taxpayer to finance their whole lives and to a high and expensive standard .

  35. In the 1930's, the most powerful teacher's union in the US was the, New York State teacher's union. At that time the organization in control of that teacher's union was, the American communist party. The main contribution of the communists in American public education was replacing history and civics with, something called social studies. This is one reason many educated in public school can't explain our founder's reasons for rejecting democracy as a viable form of governance. As communist Vladimir Lenin, said, "Democracy is necessary for socialism".

  36. No, American kids don’t need anymore confusing methods of learning, they need to get off their lazy butt and study! Stop treating them like retards! Coming from China, I know how hard Chinese students work and how much homework they have every day! Most kids take extra classes and extracurricular lessons on Saturdays and Sundays! Parents understand the importance of education! That’s why they have such a strong and solid foundation in math and science! We were ahead of American students 30+ years ago, when China just came out of devastating cultural revolution (we literally didn’t learn anything except how to become a justice warrior)! China is a huge country, with 80% of peasants, yet, those kids are better educated than the most powerful country in the world… because they work harder, instead of wasting money and time on new teaching methods to accommodate lazy kids and their parents!

  37. IQ, Aptitude,, personality,
    Gender based education
    Brought about by Vouchers for charter ,and private schools that the parents have chosen

  38. we first need pass laws that say teachers do not have to belong to the union and allow voucher and charter school choice to compete.bust the unions and decentralizing the system to allow the states to run there own program is where we start. MAGA

  39. Individual needs of students don't factor into a tachers time frame. The teacher has thirty students for one hour. There's no time for individual coaching. When your different like I was there's nothing you can do but try harder. I learned early that if I just read the books and did my best I'd get by.
    The issue with teachers unions is lobbying. Teacgers shoukd focus on improving their skills not politics. Politics don't help students learn. Only good teachers can do that. Teachers who have too many droputs or failures need a cut in pay followed by dismissal if the problem is not solved.

  40. I understand the teachers union point of view, because being above 40 and trying to learn something new is very difficult for them. I am a young engineer and i have seen older engineers above 40 struggle using software that is getting better every year. They dont want to loose their jobs because they would be basically beginners if they start learning now. But man, still we need better education and that cant stop us.

  41. Education should not be for profit. It should be for knowledge, and skills.Ripping off students so they end up with big debts, and no knowledge and skills of any value is pure corruption. A well educated workforce is a top ranking economic superpower in 20 years. But that's not on capitalist minds that are elected (ah well… who elected Betsy ?). They only want short term profit. The long term risks are for the taxpayers.

  42. As a Chinese, I will say the only problem is that the US students are too lazy to learn. Practice makes perfect. This is true, especially for math and science. US students are significantly outperformed by the Chinese students in both evaluations, while the money invested in each Chinese student is way less than the US student. If you want to become a computer scientist or an engineer, you should be very skillful in calculation and modeling. So the most effective way is to discipline the children, force them to do more after class practice then you can easily see the improvement.

  43. That America provides any meaningful education whether it is a Republican or Democrat governtment is laughable. You are nowhere near the top. Haven been for more than 20 years.

  44. For years the number of children in public schools has gone down, yet funding keeps going up. Where is that money going..? Get the government out of the school business. Privately run schools produce better results.

  45. Really???

    Simple fact check… all the top countries are public schools systems!
    Just go and see the real facts of TOP 5 ranking on education, developed countries before puking false statements… please Wake up… You know how the rest of the world looks at you now???
    It's sad… really sad

  46. Great Plastic surgery Betsy. I guess if you can't hide you can change your face to look like a cross between Phillis Diller and Joan Rivers. Her lips move and that's about all.

  47. Who gets off work at 3:pm 3 months a yr off, all kinds of free stuff, gets first dibs at all kinds of other stuff and the US can't rank in the top 10. Well it is no surprise- its kinda nice to hear someone here actually spill the beans.

  48. This us school system is a total joke, well you all will need to plan some type of brain washing for the teachers. Good luck with teaching someone that already knows everything.. LOL

  49. Why are they asking this gazillionaire lady all these technical questions these dummies all they know is how they get the most money out of the system and put it in their pockets especially Betsy DeVos she don't know nothing bunch of blah blah blah sell pitch guys. she's really good at sales pitch don't buy it warning don't buy that garbage she's selling

  50. Betsy Devos and Erik Prince are the scum of the Earth. Privatization is THEFT. Pure and simple. A massive transfer of wealth from the public to the hedge funds and Wall Street.

  51. I’d like to run for President for one reason only. Immediately after inauguration, I’d fire Betsy Devos. Summon her to the Oval Office, have her escorted off the grounds by secret service, driven out of Washington in a convertible with media cameras lining the roadways. My next order of business would be doing the same to every other republican appointee. After that I’d resign.

  52. Having Betsy Devos in charge of education is just straight up failing the American people’s educational system. As long as we allow dimwits like her to be in charge, the longer our kids will be left with poor education.

  53. This old wrinkled, delirious bitch has a bachelors in economics and no teaching experience, yet she's running the Department of Education (i.e., in the ground). That's like having a bachelors degree in psychology and practicing medicine. Good luck!

  54. American education needs improvement on multiple fronts, everybody knows this. But to have any faith that somebody like Betsy will take a step in the right direction is nothing short of idiotic.

  55. Teachers and students should have a stranglehold on 'Ditzy' DeVos and not let go until she breaths her last breath!
    The USA is now ranked 27th in the world in education yet the government spends more than many countries that are ranked much higher. In 1990 the USA was ranked 6th! USA the land of opportunity ( the opportunity to 'take my cut)!!! 'Ditzy' was privately educated and she's NOT smart at all. So she's taking money out of the public sector to keep certain groups ignorant and uneducated then giving it to private schools . . . . .yeah, they sure helped her!!
    ╭∩╮(︶︿︶)╭∩╮
    Taking funding away from public schools. This is what they call making America Great again?

  56. Betsey DeVos is not achieving a damn thing if she does not get rid of common core. It is a disaster that our children have to navigate such a dysfunctional, failing curriculum.

  57. The Democrats believe that if everyone is not getting the exact same thing as everyone else then it's not fair because it's racist. That's the problem in a nutshell

  58. So according to this info, American children go to school less but perform relatively the same as Chinese students who go to school longer. Teachers do know what’s best generally. They are professional educators.

  59. she makes everything sound great but she's not going to actually change the education system and if she does I'll be shocked she doesn't even know anything about her job
    . If you look up any video of her with the Senate asking her questions about her job she doesn't know how to answer it, repeats herself, and can't answer yes or no questions. She's a terrible rich money grubbing clueless excuse of a human

  60. It's like she doesn't have any idea of her department. Maybe having an education degree would have helped her. This is like the head of the FAA never having flown before.

  61. What is Betsy doing to stop liberal teachers from pushing their political agenda? Answer…..NOTHING! GlennFHoward

  62. in Minnesota where my aunt is from she spends 700$ a month on heat monthly during winter and 250$ a month just to drive into town daily for work. Thats 1000$ a month almost on oil. How much of that is tax? about 60%. if the dems get their way that will raise to about 77%. Healthcare is important BUT you lot also want to raise the cost of everything with your regulations. IN NJ where im from our property tax on a shitty 3 bed 1000 sq foot house is 12 000 a year!! why? Teachers salaries and pensions which eat up half of our property tax.
