I believe Donald Trump would agree with the proposition that the American education system is worse today than it was when the Department of Education was established in 1980. That statistic alone would strongly suggest that the fault for the dumbing-down of America lies with the liberal establishment and their Department of Education. And although thinking people may suggest that the best way to begin education reformation in America is to ban and abolish the Department itself, President Trump decided to reform it from the inside instead.
Similarly, education is more political than ever, and children are learning less, with the poorest children in the nation being the most abused and left uneducated by our federal education system. The most obvious problem is the political mafia who rule via contacts with the teachers’ unions, which are beholden to, and donate millions of dollars to, the Democrat party.
Short of repealing the enabling legislation that created the Department, the only way to reform it and change the leftist corruption is to get a reformer into the Secretary of Education position, and President Trump’s nominee, Betsy DeVos, was confirmed to that position yesterday, after the unbelievable, unjustified and abusive opposition of Democrats in the Senate.
This is another triumph for our new President and his attempts to rid the Washington swamp of all the corruption that liberals have filled it with the last 50 years. But don’t think that this victory for American education and for our new President will not meet even more insane, dishonest and outrageous opposition by the diminished but even more dangerous and loony leftist Democrat party and their allies in the liberal press.
