Appointee Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos Must Be Furious As She’s Finding Out Since 2009 Obama Spent $7 Billion Dollars On Failing Schools And It Accomplished Nothing

It’s not as though President Donald Trump’s appointee for Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos didn’t have enough information to overhaul Americas public schools but now she will have a ton of information to push school choice for parents because the one size fits all definitely does not work in our countries schools systems that ranks 19th scholastically among the advanced countries in the world. Throwing money at our schools does not remedy the fact that its the teaching methods and what is being taught in our school systems that should be the overall decision maker as to where are schools are going in improving our children’s education.

The following was posted by John Sexton, published by Hot Air News: “Part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, aka the stimulus, was a multi-billion dollar commitment to improve failing schools through targeted grants. These School Improvement Grants (SIG) were given out to schools that agreed to adopt one of four approved models for improvement. Wednesday, two days before President Obama left office, the Education Department published a study on its website showing the expenditure of $7 billion dollars on these grants accomplished nothing.”

“The full report, which calls the grants, “one of the largest federal government investments in an education grant program,” can be found here. It’s a lengthy report but the conclusion on student test scores and graduation rates is relatively brief:”

“There were no significant impacts of SIG-funded models on math or reading test scores, high school graduation, or college enrollment of students in schools at the SIG eligibility cutoff… For 2012–2013, the impact on math test scores was 0.01 standard deviations, the impact on reading test scores was 0.08 standard deviations, and the impact on high school graduation was -5 percentage points, but these impacts were not statistically significant.”

“So the graduation rate actually went down, just not in a statistically significant way.”

This will definitely push the argument of school choice it being homeschooling that we all know by now is really catching on and the push for Charter schools which the liberals (socialists) have been totally against especially the teachers unions because the more charter schools that are established means the less union dues going into the teachers unions treasury. Nobody is advocating more charter schools to hurt the teachers unions but the parents need to know there are options of different choices for their kids if they feel the school system they have their child in now is of no return.

To make matters worst there is still Common Core to contend with and one of the promises Trump made was to get rid of it because on top of everything else parents lose control of teaching methods with this Common Core crap which I must say is a ridiculous method of teaching which defies all common sense and I must say Trump’s pick for Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos I am so very pleased about because she will bring back common sense into our school systems and it has been stressed she is not for Common Core. She is a perfect pick and I hope the Senate confirms her soon so we can get on with educating our kids the American way and not the socialist way.

Common Core Will Be A Hot November Election Issue

Forty-five states and the district of Columbia have adopted education standards for our children. That’s the problem, who are these people and if we have a sagging education system as they claim to justify this program called Common Core why is that the case to begin with? What is the matter with the administrators and the educators we have now? Is it an implementation problem with some unqualified teachers, there has to be a reason why our school systems are sagging. Maybe less attention should be made on taking Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance out of our schools which they never should have been taken out in the first place and more emphasis placed on applying educational methods to our children that have been successfully used for decades.

This is from a post by Ben Evansky for Fox News: “But many parents see the initiative as a bid by the federal government to take over the education system. They are also angry over the “data mining” of students’ personal information, and say the stepped-up standards are not age-appropriate and are leading to anxiety and depression in their children.”

Parents want to see decisions as to what children learn at the local level. The liberals (socialists) are at it again. The top two rules that they have of winning over a society is infiltrate the unions and the schools and we all can see that is exactly what is happening. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist in the early years of our children’s education to teach adding, subtraction, division, multiplication, fractions, American history, reading and basic science. What they are doing with this common core is causing depression with the children because they don’t understand it and the parents can’t help because its all new to them. If a parent try’s to help the child, the child says “I will get a “F” mom because that’s not the way I’m suppose to get the answer.”

These socialists will just not leave well enough alone. This is a very big concern from what I have been reading especially to the mother. This will definitely be a big campaign issue in November and it will be watched closely by parents as to who can get a handle on it. These socialists who are entering every segment of our society just don’t give up. We must defeat them from their goal of taking over our society.They want to transform America. I believe we have heard this before from a guy named Obama.
