The US Dis-education Compartment
The pre-college US educational system is already lagging badly behind other comparable Western countries.
The election of someone as uniquely unqualified, religiously obsessed and anti-science motivated as wealthy socialite Betsy deVos to lead the Eductional Department, doesn’t point towards a much needed academic upgrade.
Perhaps the opposite was intended? This could very well be a part of a Republican longer range planning to secure future voters among the more poorly educated, religiously indoctrinated, gullible and easily fooled.
Just remember how Trumpy gained evangelical support by waving the Bible, – a horrible collection of made-up, scary, immoral, and impossible stories. That’s all it took! And it may work again, – unless voters get better, fact-based education.
