Exploring the crisis in funding and teachers' salaries
from By: Bambi Majumdar (commentary)
When Education Secretary Betsy DeVos ripped Oklahoma teachers for not serving their students, she inadvertently shed light on a problem that is tearing the K-12 system apart. The issue is not the teachers and the missed classes. It is the intrinsic detachment of lawmakers and decision-makers from the reality of our educational needs. Some teachers complained that DeVos has not visited enough schools in underfunded regions and therefore has no idea of what they need.
