    When Trump is assassinated and all his lackeys follow, the country will be better supported by real Americans. And if the Secret Service pick up on this---so be it-but God willing, they know it will be the best for America.

    If you keep your children uneducated, then it is easier to politically manipulate them. Wake up people and look at the big picture. Our entire government is corrupt. All they care about is lining their pockets. If every US citizen died, they would stand over our bodies, light a cigar, and celebrate their wealth.

    How else can she kill off public education? She's in her position to destroy it, and she has a huge financial conflict of interest motivating her. Her family specializes in privatizing and profiteering off of national services that unite, strengthen, and equalize citizens of a country. The so-called swamp wasn't drained, just brought indoors and expanded at the WH. The majority of Republican voters either don't understand or don't care. It breaks my heart that 40% of my fellow Americans are fools.

    Let Betsy DeVos take a "pay cut" to $1.00 per year, if she wants to make a $9 Billion Budget Cut in Education. And the exact reason as to why this Representatives' time is limited when questioning the welfare of children is why exactly again???????? Betsy DeVos is in the wrong job, doing a horrible disservice to the United States of America and it's children. Much like brother/boyfriend Erik Prince, they are only in it for the money. I would not expect either of the two before mentioned villains to have 1 ounce of integrity, nor would they do a self less act. That's just the way that they are hard wired, to be greedy.

    That's the way that Republicans do it they take all the money and tell the teachers to make it up wherever they can by doing arts and crafts and other stupid shit like that it's the same stuff that was going on 35 years ago when I graduated high school. And frankly it's amazing at the public schools can make it on with what little they're given from the states and then the states just keep cutting and cutting because the federal government won't give them any money. They're way too busy giving the money to the military which is way over budgeted and a whole lot of fat needs to be trimmed off of that military budget that we have it is insane and our troops aren't even getting paid any of it. You trim all that fat off there will be plenty of money for things like medicare-for-all and upgrading/ improving the public schools, upgrading their computer systems and security and things of that nature.

    The education system should be leaned more towards entrepreneurship and critical thinking and other subjects that are less based on memorization and tests. As a high school drop out i can say i learned more about wealth, critical thinking,problem solving etc. In the first year oit of high school and in the streets hustling and learning hands on than i did in my last 4 years of school.

    Our country (USA) is going down to the drain each and every single day! We spent more money than any other developed country in average while we are not even in the top 8 of countries with the best education system according to OECD. 1- South Korea. 2- Japan. 3- Singapore. 4- Hong Kong. 5- Finland. 6- The United Kingdom. 7- Canada. 8- The Netherlands. Remember, Betsy Devos family gave $200 Million to the Trump campaign confirmed by Forbes in 2017.

    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.

    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.

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.
