Let’s be frank here — the odds that a bunch of public school students in Portland, OR know anything about Betsy DeVos other than spoon fed propaganda is zero. But, the kids are smart enough to know they don’t have to go to class if they organize a walk out and call it a protest of Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education.
This is a union backed initiative that understands Betsy DeVos will hit them in the pocket book. We know because one of the chief complaints from the students is that Betsy DeVos will “accelerate the corporate privatization of education.”
Public school students don’t really know what that means except via indocrtrination instead of education. Hell, private school kids would be in the same boat. And this is exactly why we need someone like DeVos. She understands that leftwing teacher unions are spending their time indoctrinating kids instead of educating kids.
Poorly educated kids walk out because they’re sheeple being encouraged to do so by those who have indoctrinated them. We should not take them seriously. These children should be seen, ridiculed, and not heard.
This is not a protest. This is a a publicity stunt by poorly educated, highly indoctrinated kids.
