We need to elect school board members that will be able to counter the harmful confirmation of Betsy DeVos when it happens in Park Ridge.

Her appointment is part of an attempt to create a broad extreme ALT-Right coup in this country.

Ugh. She has no qualifications for the job and literally got it by donating big bucks. If you've got a kid going to college you will pay for this appointment with higher cost student loans and much higher college costs.

Highly qualified, i support her nomination without reservation. She will be the best education secretary in history, and actually accomplish something.

I'm worried about all the K-12 kids with learning disabilities of all kinds who she doesn't seem to think deserve an education, but since she doesn't know that the public schools, like all public entities, are supposed to promote the general welfare of 'we the people, ' she thinks like a private school admin. Just don't take anybody with problems and your stats will be golden. No, Einstein, you don't need an education. Or you either, Thomas Edison. Shape up! Schools must be held accountable but this is not the way.

She "doesn't seem to think" people deserve an education. Did she say that?

She couldn't answer questions during her interview and had no idea of some of the issues being faced in education today. Can't they find any qualified people?

Gary you mean she'll take public money and give it to privately owned schools. She has ZERO experience. Why do you support someone with no qualifications for the job?

She's never run any school system and couldn't even answer basic questions about what the DOE does.

Don't worry . She'll be able to explain the difference between Proficiency and growth, and how that's measurable to teacher's salaries :)

This is all about the money. Taking your public tax dollars and giving to private for profit schools that pick and choose what students they do and don't take.

Now more than ever we need to be so careful about who we elect to our school board. There are two candidates who greatly concern me as not being in the best interest of our school children.
