In every measure the students in this country score poorly on test comparisons vs. the world. The answer is more money from the left, the media, and the NEA. In that area the US ranks 2nd in money spent per student. Only Switzerland spends more. Change is needed. We have a Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, who is trying to initiate change. Like Governor Walker experienced in Wisconsin when he broke the teachers union, the NEA and the liberal media want zero change and you will be attacked if you try. Leslie Stahl did a vicious hit job on Secretary DeVos on 60 minutes on Sunday. It was reminiscent of the jobs done on Sarah Palin in her candidate interviews. The truth is we don’t do well vs. the world on test scores. Our kids are being poorly educated by a system that allows poor teachers to teach and be protected by a union that siphons off their dues and uses that money to paralyze the system and pay more to those teachers that don’t teach and maintain a wasteful bureaucracy to support the schools. Just think about the average school board. Made up of people who are well-intentioned but have zero business experience. school boards So, Obviously 60 Minutes is pleased that our school systems are failing. So are most Democrats. So are 99% of the media. That probably includes many Republicans who are  in the pockets of the NRA and their union. Pretty much leaves Trump and DeVos, two billionaires who can’t be bought and only have the best interest of the kids in mind. I looked at the state of Wisconsin. Governor Walker broke the teacher’s union 5 years ago. The union sent the goons in and they attacked the state house. Walker got the same treatment DeVos is getting. Most teachers opted out of the union. The Democratic Party is suffering since they don’t get the contributions they once got from the union. Older teachers are leaving the system. Guess they can’t survive without the “can’t be fired” union protection. The state has moved from 16th place in test rankings to number 10. Isn’t that the goal?

Remember the Katie Couric interview with Sarah Palin?

In my judgment this interview was worse. Stahl was out to get DeVos from the get go. It concluded with this:” DeVos has gone from a sheltered life in Grand Rapids to this”. Excuse me, does Stahl have a sheltered life in NYC?
