The Most Religious States Have the Worst Schools, Betsy Devos Will Nationalize That Trend




Growing up in Idaho it was easy to think things like permission slips for the development section in biology class were ordinary, because while Idaho might not have the maximum church attendance, the people of the nation that are spiritual take it incredibly seriously. That is why skipping biology to learn development from a textbook that literally declared it the wicked work of ungodly scientists was not too out of the ordinary. A nice chunk of my peers heard from these textbooks.

Which is only an effort to allow people the choice to utilize those textbooks and ones like them on a national scale.

Betsy DeVos would enable that with no hint-hint, wink-wink, visit the library once we discuss Darwin.” She would allow students to choose which schools that the chunk of federal money that comes with every student to any school they want. Including religious schools, which in this stage isn’t feasible.



This change would effectively allow school boards to utilize those textbooks, in reality it would incentivize parents in school districts such as the one I went to high school in to push for just that. With the threat of taking their children and for that reason the money that comes together away from the college, it would create a situation where some schools, particularly in small rural districts, would have a remarkably tough time not bending to the will of their parents.

That is obviously debatable, especially considering a few of the states with the weakest positions in education are, probably not coincidentally, the exact states that would push things like development from their curriculum as rapidly as possible.

Betsy DeVos would be catastrophic for public schooling within an institution, but more importantly the policies she’s spent her whole life threatening, would be incredibly damaging for students in districts all around the nation.1

States such as Idaho, Alabama, Mississippi, and the Dakotas are all incredibly religious. They’re also the countries that will most publicly adopt DeVos’s proposed policies.
