Here are 2 scenarios with the U.S. Dep't. of Education and Congress leading the effort to privatize public education: one is the worst-case scenario where the administration does maximum damage to public education and the teaching profession; the other foresees structural limitations on the damage they can inflict and offers hope for surviving the next four years '.With new ed sec'y DeVos what’s the worst that could happen?Scenario #1 represents catastrophic thinking. Scenario #2 is a more realistic projection, in my view, intended as a counter to the exaggerated features of Scenario #1. But how much more realistic is it? After all, I didn’t expect to be referring to Donald Trump as the President-elect today.'
