This is an absolute travesty. She is totally and completely unqualified for this position. She has proven throughout her past and especially during the hearings that she doesn't even care enough to become familiar with what the position entails or what the needs of education are. The senate has proven that they don't give a damn about the children, the teachers, the schools or education as a whole. It is disappointing to see and proves that the citizens of this country will need to step up and remove those elected officials who are not heeding the voice of those who have placed them there. We need government that respects the voice of the people not men and women who are there to seek their own agendas.
