Posted on 01/09/2017 9:27:11 AM PST by John Semmens
Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), ranking Democrat on the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee expressed doubts about the fitness of President-Elect Donald Trump's nominee for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos.
"I appreciate that Ms. DeVos took the time to meet with me, I can't say that I would have done the same had our roles been reversed," Murray declared. "At our meeting she did nothing to allay my fears that she would continue to be an advocate for school choice. This pernicious ideology is founded on the absurd premise that individual parents ought to have the biggest say in their children's education. This is against everything I and the Democratic Party have been fighting for over many years."
"Education is far too important to be left in the hands of non-experts," the Senator contended. "For one thing, choice will negate efforts to ensure uniformity. Independently run schools will choose diverse curricula. Parents who choose wisely will give their children an unfair advantage over parents who aren't as astute in selecting where to send them to be schooled. Those less informed will likely default to just sending their children to the nearest public school. If no one is allowed to choose we will have a better chance at equalizing the opportunities for all."
"An added concern of mine is that the whole thrust of the drive for school choice is anti-social at its core," Murray continued. "Many of those who opt for non-public schools harbor deviant political ideas. Letting these parents remove their children from the social mix of the public school student body endangers these children's future compatibility with their age cohort peers. Alienation is the inevitable outcome for children deprived of the reaffirming social network provided by a common educational experience. Saving these children from such a fate is the duty of those of us elected to protect the most vulnerable members of our society."

Cool. Shut down that department.
This is satire?
Sounds just like prissy Patti.
One of the dumbest creatures to ever walk on this earth and we voters here in WA continue to elect her.
Murray declared. “At our meeting she did nothing to allay my fears that she would continue to be an advocate for school choice.
This skank, Murray, “fears” a mother having a choice about selection of a school for her child, but demands that a mother have the right to kill her baby?
She’s okay with Mom’s choice to kill her child, but NOT okay with Mom’s choice regarding what school her child will attend.
This is clearly satire, even fake news.
Patty Murray is too dumb to string together that many coherent sentences.
