Vice President Mike Pence cast the tie vote on the confirmation of Betsy Devos as Secretary of Education.
This will allow Donald Trump to fulfill his campaign promises in education. Which are getting rid of common core, school choice, and dismantling the department of education.
Ronald Reagan tried, and failed, to do this.
Charlotte Iserbyt, a former Senior Policy Advisor at the U.S. Department of Education, uncovered a secret agenda by the Department of Education to deliberately dumb down the American public to make them more docile.
A dumbed down, and more docile public. So far the system seems to have worked as seen with the social justice warrior movement, who are completely brainwashed and who refuse to question authority, or the fake news that is out there.
On the same day the Senate confirmed President Trump’s secretary of Education pick by a historically narrow margin, a House Republican introduced legislation to abolish the entire department Betsy DeVos will lead.
Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie’s bill is only a page long, after merely stating the Department of Education would terminate on Dec. 31, 2018.
Seven other Republicans signed on to Massie’s bill: House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (Utah) and Reps. Justin Amash(Mich.), Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Jody Hice (Ga.), Walter Jones (N.C.) and Raúl Labrador (Idaho).
“Neither Congress nor the president, through his appointees, has the constitutional authority to dictate how and what our children must learn,” Massie said in a statement about the bill, which was significantly longer than the legislation itself.
“States and local communities are best positioned to shape curricula that meet the needs of their students,” he added.
