Donald Trump wants to eliminate the Department of Education.  That’s not a joke, I’m not being misleading.  More than once he said he wants to make this happen. Please click the read more below to see just some of the consequences.

—Using official budget figures from the Department of Education, CAPAF’s full analysis shows just how far reaching the impact of Trump’s proposals could be on students, teachers, and families. Our analysis examined the largest programs that the agency runs in order to demonstrate what their elimination would mean for the country and for each state. Nationally, according to that analysis:

  • 8 million students every year would lose Pell grants
  • 490,000 or more teacher positions could be eliminated
  • $1.3 trillion in student loans would be at risk
  • 9 million low-income students would lose $15 billion of Title I funding annually
  • 5 million children and students with disabilities would lose $12.7 billion used every year to ensure that they receive a quality education
  • 750,000 or more students from military families, Native American students, students living in U.S. territories, and students living on federal property or Native American lands would lose $1.1 billion per year for their schools
  • 4,000 or more rural school districts would lose more than $175 million used annually to help improve the quality of teaching and learning in many hard-to-staff schools
  • $700 million used by states to support the 5 million English language learners currently in public schools — representing close to 10 percent of all students — would be cut

I want to point out, 750,000 or more students from military families.  Soldiers and their children will struggle because of this.

I want to point out 4,000 or more rural school districts would struggle. 

The working class.  The military.  The farmers of America.   These are the people who supported Trump.  And he’s going to drop them in a heartbeat, because he doesn’t even understand how the education system works.  Or he does, and he doesn’t care.  

So, ah, I got this idea and it didn’t go away soooo here is a dexnursey ficlet with that soulmate trope where when you write something on your skin it appears on the other’s. Here, these two are in an established relationship.

                                                ——————-

You know I love you, right???

Those 6 words that have suddenly appeared on the inside of his right arm, warm and loving could only mean that his dear boyfriend was up to no good.

It also had to happen when he was in the middle of class. Granted, the teacher tended to talk away but he still liked to take notes. With a sigh, Dex picked up a marker from his desk and on the inside of his left arm, as discreetly as he could, he began to write.

- Nursey, what have you done?

Author’s Notes: Written for SuperCat Week Day 7 - Teachers AU

Summary: Cat Grant came outside for a fight, and ended up agreeing to a date. She’s not entirely sure how that happened.

—————————-

There were many things that Cat Grant was good at. Teaching being one of them. Storming in and making an entrance being another.

However her ability to do that was severely hampered at that precise moment in time, due to the fact that her heels were sinking into the damp grass with every step she took, turning her angry strut into more of a loping gait.

As she neared the group of screaming children Cat took a moment to compose herself and prepare for the impending confrontation.

“Miss Danvers,” she called out, in her most acidic tone, the one reserved for only the most badly behaved children.

From somewhere amongst the crowd of youngsters the PE teacher emerged, grinning brightly, with streaks of mud across her face.

“Miss Grant, what a pleasant surprise,” she said as she jogged towards Cat. “Come to join us for a game?”

Cat scowled at the woman’s cheerful demeanour. She was here to argue, she reminded herself.

“No,” she said icily, “I most definitely have not.”

“Then what can I do for you Miss Grant?”

Cat huffed, attempting to radiate her displeasure in as many ways as possible.

“What you can do for me, Miss Danvers, is to kindly keep your class under control.”

The younger teacher frowned slightly and glanced back at the group of children running around and screaming behind them.

“They look pretty under control to me,” she said with a shrug, and Cat ground her teeth in annoyance.

“Miss Danvers, my class are trying to watch classic French silent cinema, an effect which is somewhat ruined by a soundtrack of screeching children.”

Miss Danvers began to laugh and Cat felt herself bristle.

“Sounds like an improvement to me!”

“Ooooooh, burn!” A couple of the kids behind them said in unison, and Cat realised they had an audience.

Straightening her back to make herself taller, Cat stepped up into Miss Danvers’ personal space.

“I wouldn’t expect someone as uncouth as yourself to have seen any silent movies, let alone French movies, but if you had, you would appreciate their beauty and depth and would not feel the need to mock them in such an immature way!”

Miss Danvers cocked her head to the side and regarded Cat intently.

“Perhaps you’re right. How about this, you show me a silent French movie, say Friday night at my place, and if I like it I promise not to let my class make noise outside your classroom window ever again. How about it? Deal?”

“Alright Miss Danvers, if that is what it takes, we have a deal.”

Cat turned on her heel and attempted to storm off, but was once again severely hindered by her footwear and the soft earth.

“It’s a date,” she heard Miss Danvers call out after her, “and call me Kara!”

“oooOOOOooooh! Kara and Miss Grant, in a tree…” The kids began to chant, and rather than discipline them Miss Danvers, Kara, just laughed.

How had this happened? Cat mused to herself. She had gone out there for a fight and had ended up with a date.

Cat sighed as she glanced up at her classroom window, where 30 eager faces were pressed up against the glass and grinning down at her.

She really, really, hoped they hadn’t heard all of that.

Chaos Theory (Closed RP)

October, 2013, Arcadia Bay Oregon

Max was a little skeptical of going to science class with Warren. Not that she didn’t enjoy it - but because her favourite teacher Ms. Grant was away for the last little while. The young photographer only hoped it wasn’t her rewind power that screwed up the universe that badly to where the teacher would be sick. 

She sighed standing outside of the classroom with Warren and Brooke. They were talking about some nerdy-ass movies. Brooke always seemed to be giving Max the stink eye. She’s probably just jealous that Warren is taking me to the movie to Go Ape! Max then headed into the room sitting beside Warren. The desk was situated on the left side of the class, but a couple rows down facing the teacher’s desk. Beakers, Vials and other scientific objects could be seen.

Max took out her pencil case, text book and notebook. She was hoping that whoever was taking over the class wasn’t some sleazy old hag. However - she was quite surprised at who it was. He was a handsome teacher - although a lot younger than most of the staff. He seemed to be in his mid twenties.

I just pray he’s as good as Ms Grant. Warren gave Max a skeptical look and eyed the young teacher. 

“Let’s hope that we don’t get screwed up grades because Ms Grant isn’t here.” He whispered to her, Max nodded in agreement and waited for the teacher to introduce himself.

Unpopular opinion maybe?

Students should question their teachers.

Yes, there’s a point where you should acknowledge that your teacher has more experience than you, and the Pagan community takes its teachers for granted, IMHO, but sometimes teachers are wrong. I don’t mean obnoxiously questioning everything the teacher does, I mean asking stuff like “Why do we invoke Air in this direction?” “Where does X idea come from?”
