Betsy DeVos's Back-To-School Message At Odds with What Parents Want

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos visited Kansas City Academy Friday as part of her "Rethink School" tour, a campaign to showcase innovative teaching methods across the nation.

The students of the school fared better, which is infinitely more appropriate.

The first of three stops was a culinary class. DeVos worked alongside students and helped prepare school lunches that would be served to the 75 students at the school.

The Democrats asked DeVos to provide them with any communications the department has had with CFPB staff about data sharing concerns, any communications the department has had federal education loan servicers and any policy plans the Department has to increase oversight of federal student loan servicers.

DeVos says she wants to return education flexibility to the states.

The zoo school is a chance for Lincoln Public School students who love science and math to focus their studies, doing research and getting daily hands-on training.

DeVos makes no apologies for visiting a Catholic elementary school along with visits to public schools. "You're not being "oppressed" when another group gains rights that you've always had", noted one student.

The announcement was applauded by those who have complained the Obama rules were not fair to students accused of sexual assault. Under former President Barack Obama, the law expanded to protect women from sexual assault and harassment.

In contrast to DeVos's proposals to keep our schools inadequately funded, "most parents" responding to the survey "disapprove of reducing spending on traditional public schools and using the funds to increase spending on charter schools".

And school choice, with an emphasis on vouchers and charter schools, is her passion.

Clery Act requirements do not apply to K-12 schools. "It's time Secretary DeVos reconsiders her support".
