Jane Smith: VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE is a gift FROM GOD to support and work with President Trump to MAGA!

TheBestWayOne: Well King and Queen Betsy Devos got there way less money into the middle class teachers pockets. And more into the private owners and investors of charter Schools. Betsy with no experience in public education at all .Public School Teachers who are required to have a Bachelor degree up to a Masters in education are going to be told how to teach by Betsy Devos now, mistake.
The new monarch of education Betsy Devos. Chasing away talented young adults from going into the teaching profession, all that training teachers do to be belittled and denigrated by Besty and much of the media . Trump you made a mistake on this one for sure.
Still have some hope on More Made In The USA. By American Company's. Fairer trade deals, And legal not illegal immigration That's why many voters backed you President Trump
Come on Americans whats on your feet made overseas or communist China ? Or Made In The USA. You do have a choice, Buy USA Made.

gaziltapig: It was quite brilliant to pass the buck to Pence yesterday, and he bit! The average voter now will be strung along and blame Pence instead of Congress! Well played, guys! You got DeVos, her money, and no blame in a month or so when people forget, or are on the something even worse! She will DEFINITELY further your agenda with hers! This is PRECISELY how you drain a swamp... Amirite???

Hellyers: NEVER underestimate the autism of a burger !
when you think they couldn't get any lower, they always prove you wrong !
how can someone so obviously incompetent have such important role in education : ask a burger, vote for her just to piss off the other party !
what will she do for you ? nothing, but she can shit money to get there so "she good 'ight ?"
America keeps beeing the laughing stock of the world :) look the PISA tests if you dont agree facts are facts

Leonard Wong: Yes!! Pence's the MAN!! Ok ok... actually.. he's the second man! Trumps the man!!!! ok jokes aside. .....

She could face more opposition from democrat staff within the system. They could destroy evidence of corruption within the education service. Financial accounts, lofty purchases and details of other hidden spending. The billions of dollars channeled into education should yield skilled youths eager to enter the workforce with passion and vigor. Yet, the way youths from campuses sink into depression and go on strike due to the election results, warrants a serious investigation into the calibre of education staff. I hope she has security too. As with all investigations into corruption, discreteness is key.

Perhaps a better link between education and the economy can also be created. This will better provide career guidance for graduates. Each state has key industries... they can be called into to do short orientation talks. This is of course dependent on the available funds. A move like this will aid in employment of talent and prevent foreign lobbyists from leeching talent too.

Do not underestimate the role of education.... it is the foundation that good economies are built on.

Jaguar: Schumer are you ok?
Old and every day depreciating so fast
Do your shoes are dry or wet ?

TANZAN BOY: VP..good job.

WY Chinsg: Satan worked overtime for this one. But as usual, God has the final say.

Kevin Galindooo: Great!! One more idiot to pres dumps family. "God"bless america.. literally.

Ol DrtyChkn: So tired of winning

philais: Shutting down the Department of Education would be like pulling the plug of dirty bathwater.....Drain the swamp Secretary!

Long Phan: save your energy no more bull craps, waste time and taxpayer, wait 4 more years come back on campaign stages

Debra Fogarty: lol..good stuff

Long Phan: historic voted same as historic super ball New England and Donald Trump defeated expert politician Hillary. Trump has a lucky life, no one can't defeat him

I G: Commies are screw.

Shiyuan gao: this is not thecompetition。theproblem is the woman is dump

Lilbit Yazbeck: About time!!!!

leosgrandpa: Democrats are historically more retarded than ever.

ceemichael1: Pretty simple stuff. Keep the status quo which has been trailing many other nations in the education of their youth, or cast a vote for wider choice, via a system known as charter schools.  The last half century has taught us this: Tenure has proven itself to be a regressive system. The US may have the top universities but the education of the general populace has not improved over the past fifty years. Time for more choice and some meaningful changes.

Shelley Ashurst: It's like watching a bunch of first grader crybabies wailing because the teacher stopped them from poking Joey in the eye with cotton candy sticks. These are congressmen and women representing "the people"??? You've go to be kidding me! If anyone in my company behaved like this bunch they'd be out the door as quick as I could shove them. For far too long people have been voting with their feelings or for a certain party because "that's what I always do" as opposed to doing due diligence, studying ALL the candidates carefully and making a decision based on which person is the most qualified for the job.
