"Is the ed reform echo chamber okay with the fact that DeVos is bashing public schools and public school students all over the country, and are they okay with the fact that this PUBLICLY funded agency deliberately excludes public schools and public school students on their campaign tours?

}They're all on board for that? Not one dissenter? It's A-OK with "the movement" that the US Department of Education no longer serve students and families who attend public schools?If they criticize DeVos are they kicked out of the club? Or were public school students traded away (again) to secure more federal cheerleading and funding for charter and private schools?Who works for public school students? Why don't our students deserve advocates in the federal government?"
