Betsy DeVos: ‘It’s Not My Job to Protect Students Against Discrimination’




Betsy's FOR PROFIT SCHOOLS FAILED!

This is right out of the Fascist Playbook!

'Keep 'em poorly educated so they won't noticed ya just screwed up!'

No, it's her job to rape the treasury and insure only rich white kids get educated...but only enough to follow Republican Jesus.

Education Betsy DeVos just refused to say whether she would step in to withhold federal funding from private schools that discriminate against LGBT students in her first visit to Congress since her confirmation hearing in January.
In a meeting with the House appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday to defend the administration’s cuts of roughly $10.6 billion from the education department’s budget, DeVos pushed her school choice agenda, arguing the states should create their own voucher programs and parents pick the schools that best fit their children.
But she quickly faced pushback from the subcommittee’s Democratic members. Rep. Katharine Clark (D-Mass.) asked DeVos if she could think of a “situation of discrimination or exclusion that, if a state approved it for its voucher program, that you would step in and say, ‘That’s not how we’re going to use our federal dollars’?” Clark pointed to Indiana’s Lighthouse Christian Academy, where students could be denied admission if they come from homes that violate biblical lifestyle standards—anything from “homosexual or bisexual activity” to “practicing alternate gender identity.”
“We have to do something different than continuing a top-down, one-size-fits-all approach,” DeVos responded. “States and local communities are best equipped to make decisions and framework on behalf of their students.”
Later, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) said it was “appalling and sad” that the federal government would step away from its responsibility to protect students from discrimination. DeVos clarified that the education department would continue to investigate allegations of discrimination, despite the proposed $1.7 million cut to the department’s Office of Civil Rights. “I want to be very clear: I am not in any way suggesting that students should not be protected and should not be in the safe and secure and nurturing learning environment,” she said.
