Bernie cut right through the bullsh!t and broke it down.
and her family have contributed around $200M to the #Republican
party over the last few years. The root cause of this issue (besides #Amerikkka
as the next president) is money in politics. Without #campaignfinancereform
this will never be resolved - the rich will continue legally buying politicians from both parties and controlling the government for their best interest. Visit www.wolf-pac.com and join the fight. But to get back on point, Betsy has spent the last decade opening for profit charter schools across her home state, Michigan, and she has actively fought for money to be diverted out the public school system and into voucher programs for her #religious
schools that teach #creationism
as a #scientifictheory
on the origin of the universe. She does not see #education
as a right, she sees it as an untapped market where her already insanely rich family can sell their #fundamentalist #Christian #propaganda
to the youth, using taxpayer funds that should be going to #PublicSchools.
In her home state, she actively recruited the best students from the public school system, and took them to her #CharterSchools
so she could make the misleading claim that students in charter schools perform better, when in reality they just drain the best talent out the public school system and leave behind the lower performing students. #Teachers
at charter schools are barred from unionizing, usually limited to lower pay then the already under paid public school teachers, and are usually employed on year long contracts without any form of job security. Betsy will be in charge of managing the student loan program, and she has zero banking, or program management experience. The only experience she has in education, is she owns some for profit charter schools and fights against the public school system. The overwhelming majority of Trump's nominations have been absolutely TERRIBLE, but not only is Betsy a terrible person, she's completely unqualified for the role she's been offered and has fought against the schools she will be in charge of. #ElizabethWarren
