Get back to us when you are ready for your exam. I'm going to ask you how many schools are involved in the conversation. I may even ask you where the school is.

But I don't think you'll pass.
What are we discussing here.... that the VAST majority of schools don't need guns readily available against dangerous wildlife?

Why would she even agree..... most kids don't live in a rural setting..... like a vast majority....

There are many repubican teachers, including some in my family who think she is unqualified. Why do you make this about unions. Why don't you actually read what they think about her and how they feel she is unqualified. My republican sister who is a special ed teacher is scared to death what will happen under Devos.

Legitimate concerns IMO.



"Take money from"?


Won't parents run straight down to their local public school as soon as they get their vouchers to make sure their kids don't miss their chance to attend the wildly superior public schools?

Call me crazy, but I think the head of a department should have some experience related to the job.

A few of Trump's picks are people clearly who are in way over their head. Which is fitting considering the President is a tool that was elected by rubes in fly over country.

It's scary when you realize Mike Pence is the only person with a brain in the administration.

Stuff like this is why I do not consider red states to be American.

I don't even like Mike Pence and I'm ready for him to take over now.

This whole administration is like a gigantic clown car.

Just when you think there's not another doofus in there, one pops out.

So, Mike, if you're reading this... know that I think you suck for confirming DeVos, but know that we realize you had to do that so her Blackwater BIL wouldn't have you killed.

Go ahead, take over the government now. You and (cringe) Paul Ryan.

The student body is overrepresented with poor, black and Latino students and scores above the state average on exit exams.
