    low IQ kids and our expectations of there progress through the education standards set by federal government in Detroit is the reality of the problem. so teach those kids how to survive with the abilities they were born with.Early introduction of trade school curriculum may be the answer. The denial of how important IQ is to curriculum of the student is the public education departments # 1 problem

    She better thank the Chairman was there to save her from literally hanging herself from a tree outside the hearing... and just to follow up someone asked below why are the millionaires asking for a job in the congress?

    Charter Schools, yes, if done properly are a winning option for K-12 students.
    But what went wrong in her home state, Michigan?
    Why is she coming across as totally incompetent?

    With Betsy DeVos, parents will have choice where to educate their children, and they will have higher quality public education. Betsy DeVos will bring choice back to schools, and will bring sanity back to what is taught. I've seen what kids are going through in public school, and it's aggravating to the kids, to the parents, and to the teachers who want to really provide a true education to their students. The US is raising illiterate, illogical fools because they aren't being truly educated. An example, look at the snowflakes on college campuses who cannot tolerate anyone disagreeing with them. Problem is, the leftists and statists (progressives) will be trying to block everything Ms. DeVos tries to do. So perhaps there is no hope for our children to get an education in public schools, and homeschooling is the only good option. For the kids' sake, I hope the leftists and statists don't succeed.

    It angers me that we, as a nation, have such a contempt for public education. We must be the only 1st world nation (I'm using that loosely) that doesn't value education. Education is what got us to the Moon and it is what took S. Korea from ashes of the Korean War to an manufacturing powerhouse. OK S. Korea has other problems like over worked population. If America defunds education even more, we will soon be just like Africa.

    Al Franken, you came off like a jerk. at this hearing. You wouldn't allow Mrs. Devos to answer your question, then you falsely claimed that she was ignorant regarding the topic of proficiency verses growth. Seems like you ran out the clock by flapping your gip on purpose and interrupted her so she could not speak. At any rate, you came off like a nasty jerk, who just wanted to publicly shame Mrs. Devos for her Christian beliefs regarding LGBT. I mean seriously, you could see that she was sitting there, with her finger in the air, as if to say, "Wait a minute." She was clearly waiting for you to finish talking, so that she could answer your question, but you just kept on talking, and talking, right over top of her, until you ran out the clock entirely. Then you changed the subject to LGBT, so that she could never answer your original question. How shameful of you, to treat a woman this way. Later on, you used this incident as an example of Devos incompetence. You claimed that Devos was ignorant and unqualified for the job, but you know that you are the one who prevented her from answering the question in the first place. And BTW, you are the last person who should EVER be harping about the qualifications of other people. What law school did you attend Sir? You are a damn comedian, so what the heck are you doing in our Senate? I'm sure there are millions of people who would consider you to be abysmally unqualified. But I am sure they would not go out of their way to publicly shame you before the whole world, even if you were deserving of it, because its cruel. Be glad that most of the people in America are not like you.

    1:58:25 The Dover trial was NOT about the adoption of a "biology textbook including intelligent design." The trial was about the FREE availability of an adjunct book on intelligent design in the Dover school library. The litigation of that FREE availability cost the Dover school district A MILLION DOLLARS. If concern over the funding of public schools is foremost, why throw away a million dollars of education funding?

  • falleneira1

    I really don't see the negatives from everyone except the school choice issue and that she didn't go to public school, lucky her imo. She believes and has restated the choice about education will return to states. I think she was wonderful despite the Democrats spending half their time lecturing and complaining. She said she would not coerce or mandate states to accept education packages or school choice. Woohoo for states rights! I personally have not heard a good argument against school choice considering freedom to choose is America's pov on most things, just take a look at the recent marches for examples. I mean she tells four different senators that choice will return to states. States decide. Oh, FYI, the ethics committee took longer than expected. She filed on time. She's not going to take a salary. She and her family are divesting from all school related businesses and charities. She is not taking the 1043 tax "loophole" Baldwin talks about. She believes each child is unique and that school cannot be a one-size fits-all approach as it has been. I agree and the science in the field of child psychology agrees, and until now has only been available to wealthy parents that can afford to pay twice (once for property taxes and second for the private school). How has this been fair? Statistics on performance shows the current system is not working. She wants to move from a proficiency based system to a more growth based approach. And of course, she did not and should not agree to a blanket statement to support Obama's regulations. It's such a political trap. She needs to review all regulations carefully before committing to them. That's just logical and honest, which I appreciate. She is pro-technical schools, which is a welcome change.

    "Too many questions are based on the fact that she doesnt come from within the education establishment, but honestly, i believe that today, that is one of the most important qualifications she could have." I didn't see a qualification in that statement. The qualification is that she has no experience with education? Gtfo here.

    "6% of students go to Charter Schools, so who is in the mainstream here? She is obviously in support of our children." Uhmm...apparently 94% of students are in the mainstream, and she is in support of the minority. Why the hell is this guy fighting for her. He is supposed to be letting people ask questions. stfu already.

    Devos is exactly the type of person that does not belong in government. Her and her family have bribed government officials for years and their influence in government is the problem. This is not how democracy should work. Politicians should be banned from accepting donations from these rich capitalists seeking to influence government.

    This two headed witch talks a good game, but it is evident she is a bait and switch game just like the Duck. The Duck picked a good one in Ms. Amway to downgrade the education system of the USA. Under her rule there will be, private, public, charter and gutter schools. The best bet for children in the USA is being home schooled by a family member, friend or community.

    How is Senator Collins going to be mad about other senators asking to get more time for questions so that they can gain a better understanding of Devos views on education, but Senator Collins spent a minute kissing Devos ass instead of getting straight to her questions. Both parties wasted time. Their five minutes should of been only questions (period). Not any drawn out stories or any speeches of approval for Devos should have been said during their short limited amount of time to speak.

  • Shavonne Burns
    Shavonne Burns 2 years ago

    I don't understand why majority of this panel is asking Betsy Devos yes or no questions or agree or disagree questions. They should be asking open end questions that allow a better view of her stance on critical issues and concerns. By asking these yes or no questions we are not getting a chance to hear her ideas for our education.
    I also don't understand why a few senators on the panel spent their 5 minutes not asking questions but explaining their background stories or giving confirmation of approval for Devos( which clearly shows how bias and divided this panel is to make clear judgements) Also, they should be able to ask how many questions they feel necessary to come to a conclusive decision.

    I can't believe this is the woman Trump chose for our education, that shows a lot about our president. She has no experience, it's sort of sad that she doesn't answer the most important questions she just talks around them. She doesn't give enough information on enforcing the rights of education for our children and I'm very concerned that our education is going to be more beneficial to her financially rather than the schools and resources for our children.

I want to be a teacher so how can I trust her if she does not know what it's like in a public education. And before anyone says well your parents should have been more active in your education. My mom workers full time my dad travels to be able to afford things. They tried to be but my school would not cooperate.

    Betsy isn't going to "teach" our children, she's going to free them from democrats ideal education standards or, more exact, lack of. You had 8 miserable years and have done nothing but come out on top with full benefits for part time work, while you and your unions destroyed public education. Now get your hands off of our children and step aside, we've had enough. I CHOOSE private school over anything I've seen for the past 8 years out of teachers and their corrupt, thug unions.

    I don't know of any school district that pays bonuses. My husband taught for 30 years with a master's degree and 36 credits beyond. He also coached freshman basketball. When he retire 10 years ago he was making about $55,000. A majority of the teachers today must pay for classroom supplies out of their pocket and although they do have some time off over the summer they must continue to take credits to keep their licenses and move up on the pay scale. If these are grad credits they can cost as much as $300/ credit. The teachers in our district have not any kind of a raise in three years and their benefit costs have gone way up. I realize that is true in many jobs, but to say they are overpaid and receive huge bonuses is just not so.

    She has visited each one of them in person, they had this hearing, they will receive answers to written questions and all required documentation prior to the vote.
    The only reason to continue the public hearing is to allow them to continue to abuse the record.

    Mr. Trump, you better work out another deal with this woman because putting her in this position was not a good move, not smart. Doesn't matter what kind of deal you made with her, you need to let her go now and find another position for her or something unless she's got something over on you that will make it difficult for you later. I'm sure you'll figure out how to deal with that if she does.
