According to the Washington Post, Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos plan to cut over 8 billion dollars from the Department of Education. The pain overwhelmingly falls on the poor and disadvantaged. The beneficiaries? Private schools and for profit charters.
Betsy DeVos is an ideologue who has previously said her goal is to "confront the culture in ways that will continue to advance God's kingdom." Her children didn't go to public school. She is the beneficiary of a billion dollar family fortune.
Many of the cuts remain inexplicable. Special Olympics. Adult literacy. Work study. Perkins loans.
Send a strong message to DeVos and Trump and oppose this misguided budget.
Oppose Trump and Devos's plan to cut 8 billion dollars from education. Our kids deserve better than vouchers and for-profit private schools.
