John Stossel has always been one of my favorites. Here he explains why the education establishment and the Left in general are downright apoplectic about Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos. She recognizes that our public schools have failed our children miserably. Our public schools are really Day Care centers for dysfunctional kids rather than institutions of learning.
Like her boss, Ms. DeVos wants to seriously shake things up. She knows that our public education system needs radical changes to reverse its current downward trajectory.
The education system, primarily the Teachers’ Unions, will do everything they can to kill her initiatives while mercilessly smearing her character. This is how the Left operates. They won’t openly debate her, but will label her ideas as “hate speech,” while relentlessly heaping scorn and ridicule upon her. Unfortunately, these tactics have worked.
