[OP-ED]: The teachers unions may have met their match in Betsy DeVos

 02/14/2017 - 10:15

[OP-ED]: Quizás los sindicatos de maestros hayan encontrado la horma de su zapato con Betsy DeVos

 02/14/2017 - 10:12

¿Qué ocurriría, supone usted, si una defensora de la reforma educativa que pasó décadas atacando desde afuera al sistema de educación pública, de pronto se encuentra en el centro de todo, como secretaria de educación?

Bueno, para gran horror de los interesados sindicados de maestros, que dispersan dinero en todo el Partido Demócrata para proteger el status quo y se aseguran de que los intereses de los estudiantes que asisten a las escuelas públicas no interfieran con los de los adultos que trabajan en ellas, pronto lo sabremos.
