Historically White Betsy DeVos Historically Booed At Historically Black Bethune-Cookman University Comments (0)

Betsy-DeVos(Video still via Fox 10 Phoenix)

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos spoke at historically black college Bethune-Cookman University today, at which she was roundly booed.

As the video shows, most of the staff members around her stood in defiance of the crowd and in support of DeVos — who represents an administration whose president just recently suggested funding for black colleges is unconstitutional.

5 Days Ago — Trump Threatens Funding for HBUs!

The head honcho at the Florida university threatened to simply mail the graduates their degrees if they continued booing. If I were them, I would have continued booing. Fuck her, and fuck that sell-out staff. At least two hugged this reprehensible woman at the end of her hollow speech.

No, Betsy, we can not respectfully disagree. You and the administration you work for are the polar opposite of HBUs, period ...

NEA Prez: EVERY STUDENT HAS THE RIGHT TO FEEL SAFE, WELCOMED, AND VALUED Comments (0)

In light of reports that Trump, at Attorney General Jeff Sessions's urging and with the allegedly reluctant approval of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, will roll back President Obama's executive order stating that trans kids should be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice in schools, NEA President Lily Eskelsen García has issued the following statement:

Every student matters, and every student has the right to feel safe, welcomed, and valued in our public schools. This is our legal, ethical and moral obligation. The Trump administration’s plans to reverse protections for transgender students by rescinding the Title IX guidance, is dangerous, ill-advised, and unnecessary.

We reject this discriminatory plan because it is a drastic departure from our core values. We don’t teach hate, we do not tell people how to pray, and we do not discriminate against people based on their religion, gender, or identity. Period.

As the Trump administration threatens our students and our values, we will double-down on our efforts to protect our most vulnerable citizens, including our LGBTQ students and members. We urge more states, school districts, and schools to adopt protections for transgender students. We owe to our students because they need to see us take a bold stand against discrimination whatever form it takes.

 
Trump Apologists Who Continue To Claim He Is Pro-Trans Based On An Old Quote — He Isn't Comments (0)

Betsy-devos

Via The New York Times: Trump's anti-trans order (he will rescind school protections for trans students) is coming — and it's only happening because he and Jeff Sessions insisted that Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos sign off on it.

Somewhat surprisingly, ultra-religious DeVos was reportedly uncomfortable with the aggressive stripping of such recently bestowed rights, but Sessions insisted and persuaded Trump, meaning DeVos would either have to resign or cave.

Guess what?

She caved.

Gee, I wonder how the family of Jackie Evancho feels now that she sang the natinoal anthem at his inauguration and he's waited all of a few weeks before removing this progress for trans kids?

DeVos Confirmed — Barely Comments (0)

Radical right-wing billionaire Betsy DeVos — whose family has made juicy donations to Screen Shot 2017-02-07 at 4.18.59 PM many of the senators charged with deciding whether to confirm her — was, in fact, confirmed by the narrowest of margins to be Secretary of Education.

The final vote was 51-50, only because Not-My-VP Pence had to break the tie.

In history, only 10 potential Cabinet members have failed to receive confirmation; most are confirmed by wide margins.

This is the first time ever a confirmation occurred due to a tie-breaking vote by a VP.

Shameful — the woman has no idea how to do what she's being asked to do.
