    Great, about time we drain all the wasteful spending of unionized FUCKS that think just because they get tenure, they can give up and be worthless. Privatize education. Encourage competition. If you disagree with this, you're a moronic liberal.

    Anything related to education is usually the first thing to suffer lack of government funding. Meanwhile, the politicians who are cutting those funds grant themselves massive salary increases!

    It’s disgraceful puting someone in a position, with such an enormous impact on literally everything, that never had to work for anything, always had money and has not the slightest idea what the hell she’s talking about. We do have a lot of idiots here in Switzerland to and some Politicans, or better those who elected them into office, should be slapped for their ignorance. But even with all the things going wrong here, America these days tops it all within 1 day. It’s heartbreaking to see such a proud nation, which at one point in history stood up for what is right, fought poverty instead of poor people and realy stood by their word, to be forced to it’s knees by illiterate, rich idiots and those who elected them or where just to lazy to vote at all and prevent it. I wish you all the best, I know the US, especially it’s citizenry, is better than what it appears to be at this moment in time...

    She just said @2:08: “philanthropic efforts”. Public education should never ever have to rely on philanthropic efforts and the fact that they would ever have to means that the public education system is then underfunded. One of the primary functions of a government is to fund its public services so that they operate to service the occupancy of that public sector. When it doesn’t do this is completing that very core function. How are philanthropic efforts to fund the compartments of public education than the government. One relies on voluntary and willing applicants. Don’t tell me that after cutting funding you can then guarantee a sufficient level of funding by bodies who don’t have to or ironically aren’t guaranteed to fund that gap in public education resources and programs. So then then how is this a better option when the other option has to completely fund and has been funding this $9 billion proposed cut of the public education expenses. This is straight out of the extreme wealthy fiscal playbook - government cuts essential public programs , reduces taxes on the wealthy and its solution to vital program funding is that it will be left to charity and philanthropic efforts so they can ultimately decide where he money goes to and does anyone really have faith that this is going to create an equal or better outcome. The crumbs that Betsy Devos and her like will throw out into public space will have little impact to the vulnerable and the working class who they have plunged further below the poverty liken that currently exists all to sate their conscious of what they have done and they can then pat themselves on the backs.

    The $10,000 per school is likely absorbed by administrative cost (misappropriation, theft) before the money ever reaches a school.

    I purposely responded without looking at the video. I dont know her reasoning but I will say that cutting our humongous budget is similar to making budget cuts on a personal level. Waste and fluff have to go.Important functions and expenses can be combined. Truth is, the layer by layer of bureaucracy does not result in a better educational environment. The STATE level is the key.The bigger the bureaucracy, the worse the result. Retired teacher, here.

It would be a whole lot less expensive! AND IF SHE EVEN HAS A HEART IT WOULD DEMONSTRATE THAT SHE DOES!

    Like the man said, DeVos is "imagining" evidence that doesn't exist; the actual evidence (on record) proves just the opposite of what this lying witch claims. The 1% are literally gutting our nation's protective programs (all Depts.) and making our nation SICK and in lack of progressive safeguards to keep our nation strong and healthy. Dumb, sick and poor citizens make for better desparate SLAVES. Trump and his corrupt crew should rot in hell for the damage they are creating in our nation.

    She's more of an enabler of profiteer private education corporations that will rob most of our children of quality educations. She's a puppet for the privatization of your local district's school systems. She wants to help destroy school districts and force parents to pay for education. Knowing that not everyone can afford the same level/quality opens up markets for less qualified education institutions to be erected that will offer subpar education. Similar to your local shitty trade schools like Kaplan University and University of Phoenix, but it could open the doors for poorer quality schools with unqualified and unregulated educators. She's basically a coyote working for wolves that was placed in charge of the chicken henhouse, advising the chickens on how to be safe. She's a fraud, a scammer, and *will* destroy generations of children's educations. This is truly the beginning of the movie Idiocracy...

    The Department of Education was only created by law in 1979, 1979!!!!. It started operations in May 1980. It's not like there was no education in the US before 1980. The country's education system was doing pretty UNTIL the federal government got in the way and the public schools became a disaster. The DOE is just a bunch of overpaid bureaucrats that has little to do with educating our children.

Thanks to people like DeVos, being poor in the US is now a guarantee that your descendants will remain poor as you will not be able to ever afford an education. She is killing upward mobility in the US all with a smile. You can only get an education if you pay into her sketchy for profit programs than provide pathetic educational results. Trump is actively destroying America's government.

    DeVos' voice drops an octave, then... "I *will* have no public education in my regime. All must be private, and for profit, and I shall have a share in those profits." DeVos' voice rises in volume. It acquires a grating tone. It echoes in the room, as if it's coming from another place entirely. Faintly, an aroma of burnt sulfur seeps into the room. "Shut your mug, fool. D**n your eyes! Obey me! I will have my serfs obey me, and ignorant serfs serve my interests." Voice then returns to its former tone and volume.

    This is what happens when billionaires take over the country. They want a docile, compliant work force who don’t question authority and the best way to do that is to make everybody stupid by gutting education. Also 00:30 “contrary to the evidence” This is what bugs me so much about so many politicians not just in the United States but around the world. Their decisions and their policies seem to be based more off of ideologies and utopian fantasy rather than objective verifiable fact.
