US Department of Education misspells name and praises 'WEB DeBois'

Just days after DeVos was confirmed (by virtue of Vice President Mike Pence's tiebreaking vote), protesters in Washington, D.C, harassed her during a middle school visit, chanting, "Go back!" The White House list also spelled "attacker" wrong multiple times.

Parents who want to send their children to religious or charter schools should pay for that choice with their own money, and keep their hands out of my pocket. At a White House "listening session" with African American community leaders on 1 February, Donald Trump appeared not to be aware that Frederick Douglass, the 19th-century champion of emancipation, was dead. She should pay particular attention to the hard lessons D.C. officials learned in the early years of public charter schools, when lax authorizations and poor oversight allowed some awful schools to open and stay in business. "It's worked out so well in some communities where it's been properly run and properly done".

Those opposed argue that many charter schools have failed and students achieve less or no better than in public schools, even with differing standards of accountability. To help states meet the excess costs, the federal government supplied $11.9 billion in funding in 2016.

The graduation rate among students with disabilities was 63.1 percent in 2013-14, compared with the national average of 82 percent. Charter schools are public schools, and they would not be necessary if traditional public schools were doing their jobs.

About 3 percent are home-schooled, according to 2012 data, the latest available.

All he knows is that he wants one from which Sessions, due to his personal ties with Flynn and Trump, recuses himself. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell quickly dismissed calls for an independent investigative effort.

"The fact that someone with no experience in public education other than working to subvert it is now going to be responsible for overseeing the education of our nation's children is truly distressing", he said. That's three out of 10. This is what happens in private schools. One was from a dropout-prevention program.

"So what's going on with autism, when we look at the tremendous increases, really, it's such an incredible-it's really a awful thing to watch", Trump said.

I also support DeVos' goal of giving parents, through voucher programs, plus the availability of charter-school attendance, the option of leaving behind negligent teachers at unsatisfactory schools.

Trump said DeVos went through a "very tough trial and a very unfair trial" to become Education Secretary and won, the Associated Press reported, adding that America's children would be winners with DeVos as Secretary of Education.

But she faced a hard Senate confirmation process in large part because of her support for voucher programs and other alternatives to public education and because she purportedly never taught in a public school.
