Betsy DeVos defends Special Olympics budget cuts: ‘We had to make some difficult decisions’

Filed under: Children, Education, Fascism, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 06:52

She defends cutting special olympics for those who need them the most while increasing the funding for charter schools which hurts public school education.   It is something she has done to MI and it has put their school system into a crisis.   Hugs

DeVos’s remarks came in response to questions from Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), who pressed her on the amount of kids the budget cut would impact.

“I don’t know the number of kids,” DeVos said before Pocan answered that 272,000 kids would be impacted.

DeVos has long been an advocate for school choice, and her proposed budget includes increased charter school funding.

    • Hello HOH. Yes I am so angered because she spent tons of money in her home state to basically ruin the public education system to give the money to private Christian schools. Public education money to private Christian schools. Again a religious person trying to force their religion on everyone. Hugs

      • I don’t know what kind of religion is so bereft of heart but I don’t want any part of it. As I said, Shame on her and those elite bastards pulling her strings.

        • Hello HOH. She is a Calvinist I believe. One of the tenets is god in all and every aspect of life, including for those that don’t follow their faith. God in government or a theocracy is their goal. Also I guess the ends justify the means and all things are predetermined ( whatever that means ) . Hugs
