Wisconsin Teacher: Trump-Devos Cuts Are ‘Really Gonna Hurt Our Public Schools’
[Kelly Sullivan]: “The Trump-Devos cuts that are coming are gonna to really hurt our public schools.”
Kelly Sullivan is a Wisconsin public high school teacher still committed to delivering the best public education possible to her students. But she says the school privatization movement embodied by Trump’s Education Secretary is essentially a parasite sucking public education dry of badly needed resources.
[Kelly Sullivan]: “There are a lot of people who are getting into this education privatization movement that are very dangerous because they are all about making profit off of students instead of being about the value of learning and the value of helping kids learn.
It’s really important to understand that we do have some challenges in education, but cutting the resources and funding isn’t helping us fix those challenges.”
