  1. Would the Public School Teacher who posted on March 22nd happen to be, by some remote chance, a member of a school teachers union? A member of one of the organizations which should be the most dedicated to actually educating children, but which have given abundant proof that their main concern is their salaries, their benefits, their job security, and their convenience??? Hmmmmm. . . This teacher’s anti-Trump and anti-Devos comments suggest that possibility. I find myself much more in agreement with the comments posted by Charles on March 27th, particularly when he stresses the need to stop cheating our children, to bring back academics and discipline, and toss out politics and “social justice” activism.

  2. The problem with some of these candidate is the devotion to a one size fits all classroom teaching programs. We need candidates looking to bring back academics and discipline to the classroom not new untested methods that focus of test results and not learning. The classroom is no place for politics and social justice it should be providing tools for success not activism.

  3. So, the two choices are a woman with teaching experience and a man with a picture on Trump on all his ad campaigns. Let’s see who the logical choice for the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) would be? Hmmm…yep, the teacher. IF in doubt, I have two words for you: BETSY DEVOS! That was Trump’s education secretary. Someone who knew nothing about public education and spent four years trying to tear it down.
