Education Secretary DeVos flame-broils Left-wing education establishment’s ‘Common Core’ failure; highlights Florida’s school choice success

(TNS) The latest measure of the Left’s multi-decade takeover of American primary education has produced exactly the same results as the previous measure, and the one before that, and the one before that: Utter failure.



American kids continue to rank behind the world in basic subjects like math, reading, and science, and yet, the Marxist academics who control the American education establishment, along with their unions, with an iron fist continue to push social engineering and propaganda over rock-solid primary education principles.

Education Secretary Betsty DeVos blasted these lunatics recently, blaming them for yet another round of test score analysis that shows our kids are continuing to fall behind, not advance, in crucial fundamental areas that will hamper them for the entirety of their adult lives.

“The numbers are reason for deep concern,” she said at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., noting that most school districts around the country are not taking advantage of the Trump administration’s “education freedom” agenda. “This country has a student achievement crisis.”

US News noted:

Earlier in the day, results from the 2019 National Assessment of Education Progress, also called NAEP or the Nation’s Report Card, showed that math and reading scores for fourth- and eighth-graders in the United States dropped since 2017, with a particularly acute decrease in reading achievement has government researchers concerned.

“This is not new,” DeVos said of the lackluster scores. “Today’s Report Card is essentially the same as the last one, and the one before that, and the one before that. In fact, student achievement hasn’t changed much since 1992. Flat lines. Barely any change.

“Blame the experts who assure us each year that American education is doing OK,” Devos said, “that our schools are good enough. ‘If you just look at these numbers hard enough,’ they say, ‘you’ll see some improvement in some subject for some students somewhere.’”

Yeah, maybe. But if we have to cherry-pick the overall results for a spot of good news here and there, the answer is, the overarching curriculum sucks.

Because America spends billions more on “education” that all other developed countries, and we get the poorest results.

“Too many American students who were already low-achieving are worse off today,” she said. “While our best-performing students have plateaued, those near the bottom – our most vulnerable – have fallen even further behind.

“It’s way past time we dispense with the idea that more money for school buildings buys better achievement for school students,” DeVos added. “No amount of spending can bring about good results from bad policy.”

But these poor results are not typical…in Florida. And why? Because the Sunshine State’s Republican lawmakers have embraced the administration’s education choice initiatives that the Left-wing education establishment hates (because they can’t control them).

“Doing better began with introducing education freedom,” she said. “Public charter schools, tax-credit scholarship programs, education savings accounts, vouchers – students in Florida have more mechanisms for education freedom than anywhere else in the country.”

It took literally decades for the Garbage Party’s education establishment to take over our primary education. They did it for the distinct purpose of grooming generations of like-minded, propagandized robots who would instinctively pull the ballot lever for Democrats.

So it’ll take a long time to wrest control of the educational establishment from these anti-American maniacs. The Trump administration, however, has at least begun the process.

The major change in math should be an emphasis on ensuring that all students, by the sixth grade, know their multiplication tables cold. Without them, which many arrive in HS without, they cannot do division, algebra, geometry, percentage, decimals, and certainly not calculus. Some time in their HS time, they give up from embarrassment and drop out. Even Common Core says they should have it by the fifth grade. If teachers don’t enforce it, too many will give up.
That would require a special class to beat it into their brains before any sports, activities or summer off.

IF our school system is not fixed; it won’t matter what Trump accomplishes. The Communists will win and destroy our country within fifty years. It is imperative that the Department of Education (DOE) is eliminated at the Federal level along with other three letter agencies!

If you ask me, teachers and professors should undergo a similar background process as law enforcement.

Do some drug, psychological, and intelligence testing too. Also, disqualify the pedos amd homosexuals.

Everytime I check stories on other sites, there’s always some teacher pedo story — almost weekly! Yes, pedos and homos take jobs just so they can be around their prey. Sounds sick, but it is true.

Another problem is PP and soros are spending money on the satanic pervert agenda. Yep, they have a hand in the sex ed literature peddled to the students.

If I had kids now they would be at military school or private schools. Too many bad influencers in the public schools. I wish DeVos would keep at it, but much harder.

Remember what Reagan said, we are only one generation away from marxism — or something like that.

This is all in line with “The Communist Takeover of America” (look it up) Taking control of education, along with all other major institutions is part of the plan. Healthcare…same thing. This is how the elites selectively decide on which “students” rise to success, the success the elites provide, and no other, wherever possible. The college level is manipulated just as K-12 is. The Progressive Movement (AKA rise of Communism) selects kids/people for failure, useful idiot status, and “one of them” status which means their life is successful and doors are open to them. Meanwhile, the elites who can afford… Read more »
