|Psst, she secretly hates kids learning anything. Don't tell anybody.|
The billionaire philanthropist whom Donald Trump has tapped to lead the Education Department once compared her work in education reform to a biblical battleground where she wants to "advance God's Kingdom."
Trump’s pick, Betsy DeVos, a national leader of the school choice movement, has pursued that work in large part by spending millions to promote the use of taxpayer dollars on private and religious schools.
Her comments came during a 2001 meeting of “The Gathering,” an annual conference of some of the country’s wealthiest Christians. DeVos and her husband, Dick, were interviewed a year after voters rejected a Michigan ballot initiative to change the state’s constitution to allow public money to be spent on private and religious schools, which the DeVoses had backed.
In the interview, an audio recording, which was obtained by POLITICO, the couple is candid about how their Christian faith drives their efforts to reform American education.
Well it looks like Trump has finally done the impossible.
He has almost turned me into an advocate for homeschooling.
Because let's face it once this Christofascist is finished with our education system the only place an American child will receive a well rounded education is as far away from the public school system ad they can possibly get.
And that is really the evil genius of Republican politics.
They screw government social programs and services up so much that soon American citizens are BEGGING for them to be given to the private sector.
It's not government that sucks, it's Republican led government that sucks.
