Defending Public Education & Opposing DeVos on the Senate Floor
Senator Jon Tester

Senator Tester,

You’re on the wrong side of education here. President Trump was elected with a mandate to “Make America Great Again”. Even though we spend more money on education than any other country in the world, we are ranked 14th in education in the world in 2015 according to Forbes, Inc. That’s not great. It’s not even good. It’s average. Yet you continue to toe the ‘party line’ and push against any kind of real change. Why not give Betsy DeVos the opportunity to make a change. It’s time we take away Federal central-planning for education and give it back to the states. Anyone your age or mine knows how well central-planning worked for the old Soviet Union, yet we continue to pursue the same old strategies, expecting different (and better) results. You’re a third generation Montanan, so you know the outcome to doing the same things over and over while expecting different results? Insanity.

Why don’t you break with the old, tired, broken politics-as-usual and stand alongside President Trump to make American Education great again.

You might just get re-elected next year!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
