    That last bit devos says about planing for something that hasn't happened.... Well if that is her logical way of thinking, I guess cops don't need bulletproof vest then if they have not been shot before. Firemen/women don't need all the extra equipment if they never used it before. And Dr.s don't need PPE equipment if they never contracted covid 19 before.

    DeVOS - her kids were HOME SCHOOLED. She PLAGIARIZED HER APPLICATION STATEMENT! Who paid her $100,000 fine for not following a court order to repay defrauded students?

    I guess it shouldn't be a surprise that the secretary of education is a dumb ass considering who put her in that office! Just another dumb ass who says "it is what it is" You BOTH will have blood on your hands! Shame on you Ditzy DeVos!

    She is so good at swerving the question. All she says is ”kids need to be in school no matter what”. If there was a school shooting happening at her childs school, then she probably would have sent her child to school anyway because ”they need to be in school no matter what”

    This woman DeVos is so typical of our government leaders today. Did she take the same course in knowing how to answer questions, which means do not answer the question , just repeat the same thing all over again? The news reporter interviewing her is great, I cannot recall her name but she's doing a fantastic job!

  • NeonCat9

    She's going to take the word of the YMCA over the studies at the CDC?

    It's more "devastating" to be in school and become sick than to away from the school setting. Efforts should be made to bring about online learning. Also, while the schools are mulling over the question of whether to put students and teachers lives at risk, why don't they rethink the curriculum? Young people are finishing school and don't know how to balance a checkbook, invest in a mutual fund, read a financial report, do their taxes, avoid debt, or anything else to better their lives. How about some schooling that would prepare students for the real world?

    Just an entitled adult that hasn't stepped foot in a public school in her life, pushing for her own agenda of transferring funding from public to private schools at the expense of student's lives. What a disgrace.

    OMG she hasn’t got a clue as to what the plan is nor know how to put a plan in place to safely open up schools. What happens if some of the teachers and staff at school have the virus then they have no choice but to stay at home to avoid spreading the virus? Who is going to be at school with the children? She looks so empty inside just looking at her eyes

    The school I coach at has 2000 students. It is mathematically impossible for them to have 30 plus students in a classroom. Also, try telling a 5 or 6 year old to not touch their faces, and to not touch their peers. They also forgot to mention if the students get covid-19, they have a higher chance of giving it to their surrounding adults. All of the facility, staff, and their parents at home could get it from them as a result of their kids being exposed in their schools. Be prepared for this to go on for quite some time to come, because of leadership like this foolish lady.

    Rich kids are not going back , they are going on line and will have tutoring at home , you all better believe that , and do she work in school or have children in school , because those are the only people I want to hear from, and why are low income kids a focus that they need to get back so bad , cause I know a low income student right now who can teach school if they want to , super smart, so low income kids are not all dummies believe it or not , they parents just don’t have as much money as others 🤔🤔🤔

    Other countries have zero cases...and have reopened schools. Why not America? Because??? The media and the democrats want to make this an issue. Don't deny it, who went on the streets by the thousands and broke the rules, no masks, no distancing??? The ultra liberals and the liberal media is politicizing it. They don't care if they damage the children's future, families and the whole country.

    For-profit colleges across the U.S. received millions of dollars from the federal government in response to the coronavirus pandemic, with some acting as both businesses and higher education institutions. According to data compiled by Accountable.US, a nonpartisan government watchdog group, 114 for-profit colleges received at least $64 million through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). And within that list, many were also allocated money by Education Department (ED) through the CARES Act. “Few industries have received more special treatment from the Trump administration than for-profit colleges, and an invitation to double dip in taxpayer money is the latest example of that,” Derek Martin, a spokesperson for Accountable.US, told Yahoo Finance in a statement.

    I do not care what Betsy says - flush it and don't look back. Two things make her irrelevant. First, she is not a public health official. Second... there are no classrooms, no students, no diplomas over at the Department of [so called] Education. What is it? It's a grant machine, setup by Carter to receive NEA whitepapers.
