Americans have spent a great deal of energy trying to gain support for the opposition to Betsy DeVos being named Education Secretary. They have not offered an alternative choice as a suggestion leaving the matter in the hands of President Trump.
Should the Senate reject the DeVos nomination President Trump could and most probably would select someone with similar views and opinions and the fight against the approval of that individual would begin.
Whether the Education Secretary is Betsy DeVos or John B. King or Arne Duncan, education in America will not change.
Having the right to choose a public, private, or charter school will not change education in America.
The fact remains, in America, education is a business that is not concerned with the education of children but the profits of “hedgehogs” who profit from and will continue to profit from the intellectual ignorance of the people.
One hundred fourteen million people watched the Super Bowl this Sunday and only ninety-two million voted in the presidential election. Americans are more interested in who will win a football game than who will run their country.
Billions of dollars are spent buying big screen televisions prior to the Super Bowl as prices are dropped in order to control spending and secure profit margins.
Betsy DeVos is not the problem in education nor will her replacement be should her nomination be rejected. Our current system of education that teaches or children that money and the ownership of things is more important than humanity is the problem.
Until we begin the fight to Constitutionally guarantee that every child in America must receive a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing the gifts and talents that all children possess towards becoming knowledgeable, actively engaged citizens that value the righteousness, integrity, and respect of the people over the money and things that people have it will not matter who the president appoints as Secretary of Education and the Super Bowl will continue to receive more attention than the election of our leaders.
