Education voters this fall won’t forget how Gov. Scott, who’s now running for the U.S. Senate, tried to dismantle public education.
Several Florida gubernatorial candidates have signaled their support for Betsy DeVos’s anti-public schools agenda.
Educators and parents warned that DeVos was unqualified to serve as education secretary. One year in, DeVos has proven them right.
“As educators, we’re responsible for the children who are here with us now. How can I help them while they’re here with me? That’s our bottom line.”
“When I look at what’s happening across the country in the field of education – the attacks on unions, the dismissive way teachers are treated by policymakers and the alarming funding priorities, I know that I need to take action.”
President Trump and Secretary of Education DeVos used a private school Florida to kick off their campaign to promote the privatization of public schools.
DeVos has been an outspoken leader on behalf of private school vouchers, unaccountable charter schools, education savings accounts and tax credits nearly three decades.
“Telling the real Thanksgiving story is a great springboard to teaching the real history of indigenous people.”
Three US Senate candidates, Ted Strickland of Ohio, Patrick Murphy of Florida, and Katie McGinty of Pennsylvania, share their thoughts on higher education.
