Day 19: The day public education died.

Today, Vice President Pence cast the tie-breaking vote and installed Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary. DeVos, an unqualified hack who doesn’t think kids with disabilities deserve an education and that guns in schools are just fine as well as that schools should be about Jesus is now in charge of public education. And she’s there because just one more Republican couldn’t do their job and listen to their constituents. Because one more Republican couldn’t divorce themselves from the buckets of money DeVos has thrown their way. Because one more Republican put their own interests in front of those of children. Possibly even their own children.

November 6, 2018. That’s the next midterm election. It’s time to fire some Republicans who declined to do their job and proved they care more about money than people.

If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go cry some more about this tragedy. American kids, we’ve failed you.
