Jessica Dueñas, Kentucky’s 2019 teacher of the year, skipped a ceremony at the White House on April 29, 2019 in protest of the Trump administration’s school policies.
USA Today reported that Dueñas told the Courier-Journal that “the current administration is clearly attacking public education”.
She then stated “Why come to D.C. and smile and get an award and not stand up for my students?”
Dueñas is a founding teacher at the W.E.B. Dubois Academy and won the 2019 Kentucky State Teacher of the Year award.
U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos supports charter schools and private school vouchers, which were notable parts of President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign platform.
Unlike previous administrations who treat education like a human right that must be subsidized to the tune of billions, DeVos has strived to bring competition to the education sector through accountability and market forces.
Dueñas criticized DeVos’s “privatization agenda” and urged that the government “fully fund the country’s public schools.”
The Kentucky teacher of the year criticized Devos’s visit to Kentucky where she held a roundtable discussion on school vouchers.
Apparently, no representatives from Kentucky’s public school districts were involved in these conversations.Trump’s victory in 2016 has shifted the discussion in the education debate in America, and now the Left is scared that school choice measures could become a reality in America.
GOA Endorses Based Pro-Second Amendment Black Man for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor
On August 4, 2020, Gun Owners of America (GOA) announced that it endorsed Mark Robinson for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.
Tim Macy, chairman of Gun Owners of America, declared, “We all remember the impassioned speech given by Mr. Robinson at the Greensboro City Council meeting. His ‘I’m the majority’ speech reverberated across the country, and launched Mr. Robinson down a path of advocating for and defending the Second Amendment on a national scale.”
Macy added, “Mark Robinson, who is a GOA life member, has promised to give ‘not one inch on the Second Amendment,’ and to defend our God-given right to keep and bear arms. GOA is glad to be able to support him in taking this position to the North Carolina State Government.”
Robinson made a name for himself by giving a powerful speech against the Greensboro City Council’s attempt to cancel a gun show in 2018 following the Parkland shooting, which sparked a massive wave of gun control across the nation.
Robinson’s valiant defense of the Second Amendment in this instance turned him into a national icon and is likely going to propel him to victory in the 2020 General Election.
