    Warren Questions DeVos: the Video

    I’m having a good time watching you tube videos of Ms. DeVos’ appearance before the Senate Ed. Committee. People who have followed ed “reform”—- and especially people who have NOT and are always asking questions like “Well, what’s *wrong* w. charter schools ( “school choice” , vouchers, “accountability”, etc etc. etc.) anyway?”, can come by a quick yet thorough education by watching the DeVos hearings carefully.

    Kudos to… in addition to Sen. Warren ( who is *magnificent*) …. Senators Hassan, Franken and Sanders, among others,  for holding DeVos’… and by extension Trump’s, ….feet to the fire.

    not only your video though.. the recommends(or lack there of) here on JPR as well..

    This nominee is a “disaster” waiting to happen… I am very worried about my young sons future education .

      3. Too many good posts fall by the wayside

      I agree, this deserves more recs and responses

        4. Thanks..

        I worry we are marginalizing too many good people in our pursuit to pull from the left.. she’s not perfect, but definitely on the right (correct) side of the issues..

          We sometimes cut off our noses….

          6. Except the Obama admin was privatizing all along. Arne Duncan, et al.

          Where were the feet to the fire then?

          It’s a fucking sideshow.  The ruling class is funding privatization; it’s what’s for dinner.  Whoever serves you, its the same damn dinner with different parsley.

    2. Excellent!

    That was wonderful. And the responses were scary
