The secretary was an enthusiastic supporter of virtual education earlier in the pandemic—before Trump started putting pressure on school districts this month to reopen buildings and return to in-person instruction for the 2020-21 academic year that is.
Schools need maximum flexibility & contingencies to ensure student health, safety, & well-rounded learning. The Trump Admin should help school gets ready for a successful school year, not condition federal education funding on premature openings.
Trump’s long history of failed red lines has given him an education in the art of reversal. The latest from @anitakumar01
If you have health insurance, I'm asking you to fight for those who don't. If you're native-born, I'm asking you to fight for the undocumented. If you can afford an education, I'm asking you to fight for those who can't. The only way we defeat Trump is with human solidarity.
If you would like better understanding of the depths of federal bureaucrats resisting the Trump Administration go to FEC reports on donations. In 397 donations in 2019 at the Department of Education your government employees donated 397 times to Democrats and zero to Republicans.
Trump believes in tax breaks for billionaires. I believe in investing in the working people of America. We will tax the extreme wealth of the top 0.1% so we can invest $1.5 trillion to guarantee free, quality child care and early education for all.
Trump's donation to Dept of Education: $100,000. Spending cut to education in Trump's proposed 2018 budget: $9,200,000,000.
