MS. BETSY DEVOS MILLIONAIRE

SECRETARY of EDUCATION

ANOTHER TRUMP EVANGELICAL APPOINTEE TOTALLY INEPT AND UNFIT FOR THE JOB
HASN
’T GOT A CLUE ABOUT IMPROVING EDUCATION - JUST WINDOW DRESSING BUT SHE
DID DONATE 2 MILLION DOLLARS TO TRUMP


Education Secretary Betsy DeVos struggled before a congressional subcommittee on Tuesday to defend the administration's proposal to cut at least $7 billion from education programs, including eliminating all $18 million in federal funding for the Special Olympics.

When Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., a member of the House Appropriations subcommittee, asked whether DeVos knew how many children would be affected by cutting Special Olympics funding, DeVos said she did not know.  Pocan responded: "I’ll answer it for you, that's OK, no problem. It’s 272,000 kids that are affected."

DeVos then said, “  I think that the Special Olympics is an awesome organization, one that is well supported by the philanthropic sector as well.”  Pocan at that point interrupted the education secretary to say that the proposed budget includes a 26 percent reduction to state grants for special education and millions of dollars in cuts to programs for students who are blind.

After referring to his own nephews with autism, Pocan asked DeVos, “ hat is it that we have a problem with, with children who are in special education?"  She replied, “Supporting children with special needs, we have continued to hold that funding at a level amount and in the context of a budget proposal that is a 10 percent reduction.”  The congressman stopped DeVos and claimed she was not answering his question.

Pocan wasn't the only House member to criticize DeVos over the proposed cuts to special education.

Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., noted that past proposed budgets also attempted to eliminate federal funding for the Special Olympics.  "I still can’t understand why you would go after disabled children in your budget," Lee said Tuesday. "You zero that out. It’s appalling.”  Competitors in rhythmic gymnastics dance during the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on March 20, 2019.Karim Sahib / AFP - Getty Images

An administration official seemed to try to quell the backlash saying that DeVos donates her nearly $200,000 salary and the Special Olympics has been a recipient of that donation.  DeVos in a statement Wednesday defended the proposal to eliminate Special Olympics funding, saying it is "not a federal program."

"It's a private organization. I love its work, and I have personally supported its mission. Because of its important work, it is able to raise more than $100 million every year," DeVos said. Eliminating its federal funding is a matter of “ udget realities," she said, as the government is unable to fund "every worthy program."


Secretary DeVos Corrects the Record on T-RUMP

Administration  Support for Students with Disabilities

MARCH 27, 2019  Following is a statement from U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos:

"It is unacceptable, shameful and counterproductive that the media and some members of Congress have spun up falsehoods and fully misrepresented the facts.

"Make no mistake: we are focused every day on raising expectations and improving outcomes for infants and toddlers, children and youth with disabilities, and are committed to confronting and addressing anything that stands in the way of their success.

"The President's budget reflects that commitment. It supports our nation's 7 million students with disabilities through a $13.2 billion request for IDEA funding, the same funding level appropriated by Congress. All of that money goes directly to states to ensure students with disabilities have the resources and supports they need. 

The budget also requests an additional $225.6 million for competitively awarded grants to support teacher preparation, research and technical assistance to support students with disabilities. 

"The Special Olympics is not a federal program. It's a private organization. I love its work, and I have personally supported its mission. Because of its important work, it is able to raise more than $100 million every year. There are dozens of worthy nonprofits that support students and adults with disabilities that don't get a dime of federal grant money. But given our current budget realities, the federal government cannot fund every worthy program, particularly ones that enjoy robust support from private donations."


THE REAL STORY

Our future is doomed with this reject in the Cabinet  as the leadership pf the future for education.  Education, the US dropped from first in the world to 25-30 and now more lies - now hosted by a real nutcase typical T-RUMP appointee as she paid Trumps campaign a couple million dollars for the job.  The next generation is in jeopardy.

IN TWO YEARS LITTLE OR NO MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT ON EDUCATION, T-RUMP USED THAT MONEY FOR FOOLISH, STUPID AND WASTEFUL PROJECTS AND SHE HAS SAID NOTHING...  SHE IS IN THE TOP FOUR CANDIDATES FOR DOUCHBAG OF THE YEAR... MOST IN EDUCATION SEE HER AS A RICH EVANGELICAL NUTCASE TO DONATE TWO MULLION FOR T-RUMP TO BUY IN THE LIES


So Trump cut the budget knowing that she would not go against him.  She wants vouchers for private schools, more for the rich and nothing for the poor that would help.

No money for schools, teachers, and eliminate the department of education, he slashed the education budget by billions... Just another place Donald don’t think money is needed. 

Our education standards are slipping badly and getting serious nationally.  So he puts an Evangelically declined Jesus juicer born-again fruit-keg in the Cabinet position not fit to run a lemonade stand in the desert in a third world country.

Legislation to foster school choice has not passed in Congress, although the new tax bill does allow families to use tax-free college savings accounts to pay for private, K-12 education. 

Basically, the nutcase Trump hired to do the job, Betsy DeVos has more to worry about like being kidnapped and hanged, she is incompetent, arrogant, an Evangelical nutcase, a rich bitch who bought her job, many people feel, and not well liked. 

Thats means she fits right in the cabinet.  Right now the status to better education, is do nothing, doing nothing, done nothing.  Our kids on the world scene are failing horribly...  Our kids and yours will suffer at her hands...

Slogans and chants, TRUMPS most dangerous device have meaning and are effective:  So I will in the best of Washington tactics offer a chant I heard when she went to a school in NY,  for Betsy Devos...”   Throw The Fake Trump Bitch Out”  I liked it...

Today, President Donald Trump and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released their proposed budget for the 2019 fiscal year. The Trump administration’s budget proposal for this year makes strikingly similar drastic cuts to the administration’s fiscal year 2018 proposal, which represented the most devastating funding cuts to the US Department of Education since Ronald Reagan’s presidency.  Money for the rich, none for the poor or their education.

She with T-Rump will pass the good life of the rich to the burden of the future middle class if there is one.  She needs to be replaced, gone, forgotten about, removed, exterminated before any one kid in this country loses out because of her.
