Liberals, Teachers Unions Are REALLY Upset About Trump’s Ed Sec Pick

President-elect Donald Trump’s choice to nominate Betsy DeVos as the next Secretary of Education has sent progressives around the country into a tizzy, with teachers unions and other groups denouncing her as a dramatic threat to the current status quo of public education.

Within the Republican Party, Trump’s choice was seen as a form of outreach, bringing in a woman who was a close ally of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and who had harshly criticized Trump during the GOP primaries.

But on the other side of American politics, DeVos made some figures apoplectic. DeVos, who chairs the American Federation for Children, has a long history of pushing for enhanced school choice around the country. According to the country’s top teachers unions, though, her true agenda is a corporate takeover of America’s schools.

They are afraid of Charter Schools. Means a threat to their job security.

I am a teacher and the union sucks. They are a liberal political money pit that cares very little about improving our schools. I got out of the union when they showed us that making money was more important than defending the teachers and students. The unions hate charter and private schools because they can educate better for less money and don't have to belong to the union.
