      Newdark Neoss You are going to compare the US with 65,000 infections a day and close to 1,000 deaths a day with Germany that has had at most 8,000 deaths in total. We have 134,000 deaths. Apples and Oranges. Compare the US to Brazil or India not Germany or Japan. The US has officially failed in this pandemic.

    • The World According to Allie . Good on you. You must watch Randy Rainbow interviewing Devos, it’s Fkn hilarious 🤣 He confirms all of the issues

    • Newdark Neoss Germany is on the recovery side of the virus. They like most countries have slowed down their number of new cases and are ready to open up responsibly, USA has the most case in the world right now your numbers just keep getting worse so you are no where near ready to be sending children to school yet. Think things though.

    • @jcllings Don’t you dare conflate the immoral religious right with homeschooling. You’re only fooling your own like-minded delusional believers.

    • @Traci M Tell that to the trump. Oh, nevermind, he won’t care.
      You’re right the US numbers are rising everyday and in no way ready to reopen. I wouldn’t even open the NY schools yet, honestly. But they open in September so we’ll see about that next month.

    She hasn’t done anything for teachers period. She’s not an educator. She doesn’t have a degree in education. She has no idea what she is doing. Her pockets are aligned. Same as boring Ben Carson. He has a medical degree not a human social resources degree.

      @CHARLIE o Of course.

    • Veronica Valencia well spoke Veronica. I’m sick of that kind of behavior myself. It might as well be hate speech, as it serves zero purpose other than to provoke otherwise decent people.

      Bitsy De Voss is an Amway Pyramid Scheme Heiress Huckster

    • @Veronica Valencia Settle down Karen. You do realise that you are doing the very thing that you are accusing someone else of? That’s one of the problems with the left, they aren’t tolerant of differing opinions and they react poorly. Each time universities shut down free speech on campus, all prime examples because it were only conservative right that were targeted. And they don’t just go after the speaker themselves, anyone that dare to want to go and see for themselves are turned away too. You could be deaf, dumb and blind? Educator’s should be concentrating on reading, writing, mathematics, science, geography, history (ancient or modern), trade skills, home ed, environment, art, music, sport, ethics. Teach our kids to be thinkers not followers, your harming generations to come by trying to indoctrinate them into future Democrats. Allow kids a choice by providing them with the tools to make up their owns minds.

      Gary Kain -We can’t allow kids to make up their own minds, or genders for that matter. There’s actually legislation out there which permits teachers to tell your kid they are the opposite gender without telling you or gaining permission first. Yikes! Keep the schools closed!

  6. DeVos is drinking the bleach. But she was a slithering snake to start with.

    • @Truth 4tufftimes! Ahh! You admit to the Devos agenda! The biblical viewpoint is a method to indoctrinate children into a particular system of fairy tales. Devos wants to violate the Constitution by using public money to push a particular fairy tale system that she has faith in. Faith by the way is a belief in something with no evidence.

      J. Whisper -Fairy Tail, universe explodes out of nothing. Human DNA code evolves from pond scum. Earth at exact distance from Sun and moon to sustain tides and life. Multiple scientists agree with the biblical account of creation but they’ve lost their voice. Put a bunch of random car parts in a warehouse, throw in a few sticks of dynamite and see if a corvette drives out. This the equivalent of what’s taught in public school regarding origins of life.

      Mdlclass Worker Do you know her on a personal level? Why is it suddenly ok to characterize and identify people without getting to know them. I feel a lot of hate towards this women because of her Christian beliefs.

    • @Mdlclass Worker 9.1% of the entire USA GDP is God and tax free. American religious scams are the 16th largest GDP globally if it were a country. They own the politicians. They are part of the Libertarian Anarcho-Syndicalist Theocracy the L.A.S.T. 4 justices seated by an unelected POTUS want. Mitch got his Feudalism 2.0.

    • #DonTheCon and his admin have the luxuries of regular testings and high quality treatments if they are ever infected, yet they are pushing people without such privileges into the the killing zones of Covid-19.

    • @Judy Ives I gave Trump the vote in 2016 and nope if I had kids they would not be going to school in September. But homeschool. and I want to see Trump send Barron to public school in the fall now. but on the political speak I’ll insult China all day with kung flu as they killed our country.

      @RSS HA ha. 86% of the people who get WuFlu never knew they had it. They were never sick. What is there to fear if you never have any ill effects and if 99.74% of people survive just fine. Stop fearing the boogieMan virus.

    • Lunch ladies. Counselors. Here’s one – substitute teachers, who move from school to school.

    • @Lucius Kiirus
      I doubt you’ll ever tell that to a surgeon, if you need a surgery.
      If they told you they weren’t going to wear mask while operating on you, you’d probably try to sue them, like the hypocritical PAB you are.

    • Madd the Sane | July 11, 2020 at 9:37 PM | Reply

      Lucius Kiirus where is the 99% number from? As the mortality rate is higher than 1%, the numbers do NOT add up.

      Then there’s the long term effects of the infection after it’s gone: loss of smell, diabetic symptoms, sterility. Brain damage.

      After all that, the 99% looks bogus.
      Put up or shut up.

      No. It’s anti- teacher union. Huge difference.

    • @Dorian Shades of gray and this is a federal problem, affecting the entire country, therfore the federal government should step in and help out. Thats why we have this system.

    • @Tristan Vassar what is wrong with you? We are all Americans and belittling others is beneath you.

  14. I feel so awful for the uphill battle these teachers have to fight against Betsy Devos, who because of her fanatical drive to dismantle public education, makes the whole struggle an ideological battle.

    Remember when Betsy Devos tried to cut funding to the special olympics. This administration is just heartless.

    • Robert Onditi | July 11, 2020 at 10:06 PM | Reply

      Dear@kiricalo ,the economy is the only thing we should never loose sight of,it underwrites everything else,i am glad TRUMP is lazer focussed on that,and you should to,And you know why ? You take away a man’s life when you take away the means by which he lives.The point of every crisis in life is to make it to the other side,not to stay in perpetual victimhood. If the number of cases is so high,like cnn is reporting,how come deaths are at an all time low,do you know yesterday only 274 people died of corona in the entire USA,is that justification to keep staying at home and not opening schools.And by the way,of the people who died,nearly all had preexisting conditions ! Stop watching CNN,they have other agendas,just because they say stuff that mimic your talking points,doesn’t mean you believe in the same thing ! And i believe you are smart enough to know when TRUMP is being quoted out of context and what he really means ! Open your eyes.

    She’s right.! No, we don’t send children and teachers to the slaughter house

    • To Christopher M Trump has made a big assumption here that teachers, and all faculty and staff and all students and parents are agreeable to all getting back in the classroom As Trump opened up the economy too soon we see the nasty effects if that right now. Opening up the schools too soon would probably have the same effect. I believe that Trump must see that lives are more important than schools receiving the money. I think each state should contact their neighboring state (teachers and parents and all agreeable faculty persons including the kitchen staffs, maintenance people nurses etc and go on strike and keep students and everyone out of schools until it is safe . If everyone refuses to do what Trump wants he might get the hint. He is being a bully and I think it is time to stop. He has no capacity within himself to understand the fears of everyone on this issue. Go on strike and don’t budge from your homes. To hell with the money. Lives are much more important. Good luck

      @Meryle W I agree. I wish we could strike, but it is illegal in my state. I’d get fined $1000 each day I strike. My district could lose 5% of their funding if they don’t penalize us.

    • DeVos follows her spiritual leader, Rev.Trumpskin, by blaming her failures on everyone else.

  20. And Republicans are “pro-life” 🙄
