I always love when people complain like this.
"OMG school has been getting shittier and shittier and are ranking and grades have been dropping steadily for years compared to world wide. How dare they put someone new into power that isn't going to do the same thing we have been doing"
I have no idea who this lady is or what she stands for, but how about we let her do something before we cry about the sky falling. I've been hearing for years how our school system is going to shit. Thus doesn't that mean that our prior Education Secretarys have been shit?
edit: also arts programs get cut for lack of funding, not because of some agenda. If you care so much for them, make a donation to the school of your choosing and stipulate it be used for the arts. My colleges call me all the time for donations. High Schools don't, but I guarantee they are not against donations.
What kind of tragic logic!? Do you let a Lion bite you before you deem it dangerous? If someone has a proven track record of incompetence and has pushed values you find hugely regressive, it makes every sense that you speak on your displeasure.
You're complaining about people being political engaged and actually having an opinion.
