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

"Arts education has inarguably saved me", wrote one student who detailed her struggles with mental health.
"This is a great example here of meeting students where they're at and really addressing the needs in a community", said Besty DeVos.
Kansas City Academy is known for strongly supporting students with alternative lifestyles, but no one asked DeVos about eliminating a federal policy that allowed students to use rest rooms matching their gender identity.
Devos will visit a school in Missouri before heading to in on the last day of the tour. The Social Justice Senior Seminar (what other local school would fathom such a group?) made a decision to create an all-school booklet to give to DeVos.
I believe she came with genuine curiosity to learn firsthand about the collaboration between public and private entities: Zoo School.
Anything less reeks of self-preservation for administrators, not survival of the fittest schools for our kids. "We want to encourage local education leaders to continue to be creative, to empower parents with options and to expand student-centered education opportunities".
She didn't say how the rules would change but said her office would seek feedback from the public and universities on new rules. Yet, at the same time, Congress seems to have no plans to enact the stronger support for neighborhood public schools parents prefer.
Parents and board members also attended the tour. After Gary, she was scheduled to go to the Hope Academy in Indianapolis - which assists high school students recovering from addiction - before concluding her day at a Hancock County High School football game and hog roast. Superintendent Cheryl Pruitt and school board president Rosie Washington were also present for her visit.
Ms. DeVos will wrap up her tour of West and Midwest schools in IN on Friday. I hope Secretary DeVos found a warmer welcome inside the Zoo School to see for herself what competition, public and private, can do to push American education toward distinction.
In a statement, Indiana Democratic Party chair John Zody criticized DeVos' visit.
"So much of our curriculum has been focused on the average student, and yet we know that no student is average", DeVos said.
Paul Ince is backing Manchester United to beat Everton in what the retired midfielder considers to be "the game of the week". Everton have been a bit inconsistent this season, as they have mixed some impressive displays with some really poor ones.
BSF troops guarding the border, retaliated the firing and gave a befitting reply while on civilian was also injured. The jawan, identified as identified as Captain Brijendra Bahadur Singh, was succumbed to his injuries.
Democrats , meanwhile, warned that the meeting was created to justify a later push for new, restrictive voting laws. Congress should conduct vigorous oversight of the commission's efforts, which are an affront to our democracy.
While Baghdad recognizes Kurdistan's autonomy, the precise boundary between the region and the rest of Iraq is unclear. But relations with Baghdad have grown strained in recent years over oil and the disputed areas.
The statement from the North Korean state-controlled news agency also had a disturbing message for Japan. The UNSC took the step as Pyongyang conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test earlier this month.
I'm veering towards GGG, given his experience in the ring with bigger boxers and his ability to dictate the pace. This will be the first time Golovkin will fight in Las Vegas, the boxing and entertainment capital of the world.
She adds that utility providers have said they hope to have power restored for all of southeastern Florida by the weekend. Jon says that "apparently, the facility lost some, but not all of its power after Hurricane Irma".
The most recent Zapad exercises, which occur every few years, took place in 2013, just before Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea . After these military preparations many troops stayed in the area to participate in the subsequent war with Ukraine.
The European and American forecast models move the storm near the the Mid-Atlantic states early next week. Hurricane Jose has gotten very little coverage, lurking in the shadows of Irma for the past several days.
