Betsy DeVos: Everyone Deserves a Good Education

All of the things that you might value in education for your own child are probably things that are not currently available in the public school system. It is true that some parents might get lucky and have their children enrolled in a surprisingly well-performing district, but it is more likely that students are still being given a level of education that is substandard. Betsy DeVos was an advocate for school choice way before it was more of a mainstream issue. Now more parents are seeing that this is a growing problem in America and they want to take steps to adjust for it. Betsy DeVos, now Secretary of Education, has many thoughts on why school choice programs are going to be so important in the future.


A previous interview that she had with Philanthropy highlights why she believes that this option is going to be the future of American education. She explains that while she has a burning passion for the field of education at this time, her introduction to education was a gradual one. She had her own children that were enrolled in a private institution, but she also came across parents who were struggling to keep their children in that institution as well. They did not want to put their children into the public-school system. Instead, they were willing to sacrifice everything they had to ensure that their children were in an environment that they consider being essential to their learning process. It was also a good piece of mind for them that their children were safe and held to a higher educational standard.


For Betsy DeVos, this dedication showed her that a good education is sometimes a sacrifice for parents. She wanted to make it more mainstream for parents to consider alternative education choices. By doing so, she wanted to make it possible for these types of parents to qualify for scholarship programs and school voucher programs. She went on to join the State Board of Education in Michigan to help advocate for those voucher programs and scholarships. As a result of her efforts, Michigan is now a leading example in the school choice movement. She wants to parlay the success that she experienced while in Michigan to her national role as Secretary of Education. She believes that more parents all over the nation are still in need of this type of guidance where these educational institutions will be open to their children. She is willing to put in the work necessary to help children who would not normally have access to the superb learning facilities that are available through third-party education vendors. She knows that these resources are sometimes out of reach, that is why she is so committed to scholarship programs and other types of payment for the use of this education. It is her hope that as people become more familiarized with these additional education systems, that funding will open up to make it possible for lower income individuals to remain a part of the system. She believes that everyone deserves a good education.

Adam Milstein Alerts the Friends of Israel Regarding the Increasing Anti Semitic Wave

According to Adam Milstein, the establishment of the Zionist state did not augur well with many Muslims around the Middle Eastern region. He says that Israel was used to the hatred coming from the right wing. However, according to Adam Milstein, there is an increased wave of anti Semitism that has been rising in the recent years. The groups are hell-bent on making Israel appear the villain without due consideration of the facts surrounding the issue. In a report that was posted on JNS by Adam, he says that the hatred against Jews and Israel is no longer a preoccupation of the radical right. It has found its way into the hearts of the radical leftists. Adam says that the enemies of the Jewish state are using ant Semitic sentiments to galvanize support from Muslims from all quarters. In other words, it is a uniting factor among Muslims.

Different Regions, Common Ideas Shared

According to Adam Milstein on JNS, the three sources of hate campaigns against Semites and the state of Israel, in general, are sharing ideas and tactics on how to propagate the hatred further, and destroy the state of Israel. While it is not so shocking to know that radical Muslims are increasingly finding ways to hate the Zionists better, it is disturbing to know that some of the regions and communities that were either neutral or strong supporters of the Jewish cause have turned against them. The hatred for western influence has also helped to unite the anti-Semitic ideology. The enemies of the Jewfish state have managed to cast their differences aside for the sake of uniting against Israel.

Adam wonders how the radical left manages to look away from the extremes of radical Islam. He describes some of the ideas and culture among the Muslims including mistreating women, minorities, and gays as bigoted. Such perceptions create a false image of Islam being a monolithic block. Adam Milstein says that it is important to recognize the difference between mainstream Islam and radical Islam. The tendency to view Islam as a monolithic entity only worsens the situation and offers a false token that they are oppressed by the West.

James Larkin; the Famous Activist for Irish Casual Laborers

A century ago, Irish casual workers were neglected and worked under severe conditions. While a majority of the employees were unskilled, labors unions were for the skilled and educated workers. Casual laborers earned pennies, worked under hardship conditions, were neglected, and lacked support and help from the organizations that existed. They required someone to stand up and fight for them since the change was inevitable. The national bodies that were relevant were more into politics and overlooked the sad state of affairs facing casual workers.


James Larkin is an Irish native born and bred in the shanty neighborhoods of Liverpool. Coming from a poor background, Jim was unable to attend the formal system of education and at a young age started working in the Liverpool docks to earn a livelihood. He was first exposed to the power of mass action during the 1905 workers strike. From there, Jim decided to give his all in fighting for equal workers’ rights, improved working conditions, and socialism. He joined the National Union of Dock Laborers (NUDL) and became the voice of the organization.


Through NUDL, James Larkin had a platform where he could advocate for the well-being and rights of Irish workers. Though he faced resistance from different quarters, his powerful voice could was hard to ignore. After several years, Jim was again involved in forming the Irish Transport and General Workers Union (ITGWU). The organization grew exponentially to become the most significant and revered labor union in Ireland. Jim served as its chairman from 1907 to 1914 when he quit and moved to the United States to seek new challenges in life. Throughout his career in activism, Jim adored the doctrines of Karl Marx, a famous philosopher.


Apart from the NUDL and ITGWU, James Larkin was a member of the team that started the Irish Labor Party. The party was involved in significant protests and strikes that called for the change of the demeaning labor laws and improvement of working conditions. The famous 1913 lockout that saw more than 100,000 dockworkers go on strike was the work of James and other members of the party. The slowdown was successful as employers accepted to improve the working conditions of casual workers.
