Charter schools do not have to be unionized. Teacher unions hate charter schools and attack them with some incredible accusations including that they do not educate the kids. Parents still want to have their kids at charter schools, away from the chaotic and indoctrinating ways of the schools controlled by the unions.
The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are very concerned with the Trump nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. The accusations against her are above and beyond the typical leftist rhetoric. Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and Teachers Unions will go to any length to have Betsy DeVos defeated because they realize that Betsy DeVos is the first Secretary of Education in many years that truly is a threat to their agenda. Betsy DeVos is concerned about educating our students, she is opposed to the system of indoctrination that is now in place.
Senate Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) took to the floor throughout the day and night Monday to voice their opposition to Betsy DeVos — a Hail Mary effort to convince one more Republicans to join them so they can thwart her confirmation. The 24-hour marathon of speeches concluded at noon on Tuesday, when the Senate voted to confirm. That vote was a 50-50 tie, with Vice President Mike Pence then castin a rare tiebreaker vote to ensure that DeVos was confirmed. This was the first time a vice president has needed to cast the tie-breaking vote for a Cabinet secretary.
This all-night debate was not a filibuster, which is a tactic that seeks to delay or block a vote. Instead, it was an attempt to call more public attention to the vote, and increase public pressure on GOP senators who had already received tens of thousands of calls and emails from people who opposed DeVos, pushed heavily by the Teacher unions.
Democrats will do "everything we can to persuade just one more Republican to join us, and I strongly encourage people across the country to join us — to double down on your advocacy — and to keep making your voices heard for these last 24 hours," said Patty Murray (M/P-Wash.), the ranking Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) on the HELP Committee, in remarks prepared for delivery.
"In my mind, she is the least-qualified nominee in a historically unqualified Cabinet. On conflicts of interest she ranks among the worst," one opponent said. "She seems to constantly demean the main purpose of her job: public education."
Schumer called her answers during the committee hearing "embarrassing."
"Not only for her, but for my Republican colleagues on the committee who rushed her nomination through with five minutes of questions," he said.
“On basic competence, she has failed to make the grade,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New York Marxist/Progressive. “She didn’t seem to know about the federal education law that guarantees education to students with disabilities, she couldn’t unequivocally say that guns shouldn’t be in schools, and she didn’t seem to know about a long-simmering debate in education policy about measuring growth versus proficiency.”
Mr. Schumer called Ms. Collins and Ms. Murkowski “profiles in courage” for breaking with the rest of the GOP, but lamented no other Republicans peeled away from their president. Both Collins and Murkowski received substantial political campaign contributions from Teachers Unions.
“I realize it rarely occurs, but this should be an exception because she is so uniquely unqualified, whether it comes to competence, whether it comes to philosophy — against the public schools — or whether it comes to conflicts of interest, which still exist in far too many instances,” Mr. Schumer said.
If you support our kids being indoctrinated in the Marx doctrine of “social justice,” “global equality,” “multi-culturalism,” and anti-capitalism and individualism, you supported the frantic cry to defeat DeVos. If you support our kids learning how to read, write, do math, think, civics, and accurate history, supported the nomination of Betsy DeVos. It truly is that simple. Both the Marxist/Progressives and the Teachers unions support indoctrination as called for by Marx.
