With Besty Devos now being confirmed as the nation's new Secretary of Education it is important to know not just what she stands for but how she is literally putting her money where her mouth is as far as "reforming" public education. If you don't know Devos is from the state of Michigan home to one of the worst performing schools in the nation: Detroit Public Schools. This is to shed light on the astrocities of corruption on not just Devos but all parties involved (including the Obama administration) to give public school students, teacher, and parents the short end of the stick while pretending to solve a mess that they have allowed to transpire. Is education a right to these people or is it just a means to weed out future criminals for profit?
Most people know there are real problems in our society. A lot of people feel the effects of those problems. However, a few people make it their business, literally to go to work in the system to make changes to the system that make a real difference for a lot of people. Durrel Douglas is one of those change-makers.
Durrel Douglas recently moved to Washington State from Texas where he was a community organizer. Now Durrel is the Political Organizer for SEIU 925. However, before Durrel was a super-organizer he was a prison guard and that gives him a very unique perspective on social justice. In a very short time, Durrel's experience and wisdom have become invaluable in the I-873 campaign.
We are going to talk to Durrel about the state of the modern civil rights movement and why I-873 is important in Washington State and for the rest of the country.
