I saw this today in the local Union newspaper I receive every month. I was so afraid when Betsy DeVos became Secretary of Education, especially since she doesn't truly understand the need for some important federal legislation to protect our student's needs. I have read and heard more about plans for more school "choice" (read: destruction of public schools) and reducing the role of the federal government in education. I just hope someone comes to their senses soon and gets her out of there.
I am a math teacher in the New York Department of Education. I infuse technology and real-world problems into my curriculum in order to prepare my students for the future. I would love for people across the country to recognize we teachers can't do it alone. If you don't believe me, come visit my classroom!
