White Power Princess

U.S. Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has been busy transforming public education in her own Christian Right image. To wit, her pet project to arm grade school teachers, hoping they can take out terrorists. What could possibly go wrong with that, you might ask. Well, Betsy--sister of notorious Blackwater mercenary company CEO Erik Prince--has now scuttled 1,200 civil rights investigations, begun under Obama, that examined complaints of systemic racial discrimination.

Way to go Betsy! Jeff Sessions can't hold a candle to you when it comes to bigotry!

Sadly for Betsy, fucking bureaucrats in her own department--responding to a request from a tribal executive board--decided to investigate a school district in Montana for systemically discriminating against Native American students. As Roxanne Gourneau, a former member of the Fort Peck tribal executive board stated,
The school district has done more to fuel Native students' trauma than to support their education. Change is long overdue.
