No stranger to a softball, former Vice President Joe Biden recently told Teen Vogue that Education ‘Secretary DeVos is going to really dumb down Title IX enforcement.’
For the first time since his election, President Trump has reiterated his opposition to Common Core. And his education secretary is starting to sound promising notes.
Wednesday night the Trump administration reversed the one-size-fits-all approach the Obama administration took last year on student privacy in sex-segregated facilities.
Now that Betsy DeVos has been confirmed, it’s time to offer her realistic advice that does some justice to the legitimate concerns about her nomination on both sides.
Let’s read Donald Trump’s reiterated promise to repeal Common Core, not in the ruling class’s legalistic hyperliteralism, but on Trump terms, and on the American public’s terms.
Leftist control over education, from preschool through college, is a prime contributor to leading Republicans’ inability to think through education policy.
Her opponents fight the person, but Betsy DeVos’s platform is sound education reform.
Donald Trump’s pick for education secretary, Betsy DeVos, answered an array of preposterous questions from a bunch of unserious people. It’s a reminder that politics is often tragedy.
Given all the DeVos money floating around Washington, how likely are Republicans to ask some fair but critical questions about a woman who would oversee some $70 billion annually and 5,000 public employees?
No objective data finds that a single major federal program has had any effect on any of its targeted outcomes. This ought to give Betsy DeVos some humility about her position.
School choice increases parental involvement and student achievement. Betsy DeVos could use her bully pulpit as education secretary to drastically deregulate federal education policies.
Former DC schools chancellor Michelle Rhee is definitely a celebrity. But that’s about the only way in which she would fit with a Donald Trump administration as education secretary.
The Left thinks it’s progress to pretend that human beings won’t do bad things simply because we don’t want them to. Observant people call that pride.
If the Obama administration and courts change the word ‘sex’ in the Title IX section related to bathrooms, it is changed for the entire statute.
Federal control over public schools has sent them into a death spiral, exemplified in the Obama administration’s new demands. Families need a new education ecosystem free from federal bullying.
Mississippi, Louisiana, South Dakota, New Mexico, and Arizona must love U.S. taxpayers for sending them so much K-12 money for lackluster education.
The establishment wants you to think Common Core is a shiny legacy for departing Education Secretary Arne Duncan. Nothing close.
Bills to rewrite No Child Left Behind put Republicans in a bad political position and expand the federal role in education.
How comfortable will menstruating young women feel attending school if they don’t have female-only bathrooms? The Third World knows.
Chris Christie offers a fundamentally unserious education agenda while arguing we should make him our nation’s commander in chief.
