.Regrann from @berning_media_network - “The Trump administration is proposing steep funding cuts for violence prevention and recovery assistance programs for public schools across the country. This comes amid 18 school shootings so far in the first 2 months of 2018.
Donald Trumps budget is seeking to cut $25 million (36%) from the Education Department’s funding for school safety activities. The department has also called for the complete elimination of the Project School Emergency Response to Violence, also known as Project SERV and Project Prevent Grant programs.
President Donald Trump’s FY’19 budget requests for a reduction or complete elimination of funds that have helped cover the costs for counseling and violence prevention programs in public schools. Education Secretary #BetsyDeVos sought out for funding levels that she said would “completely abdicate responsibility” for school safety, violence prevention, and recovery, according to a report released Friday by the Center for American Progress (CAP).”
A close-up of my #repdavidyoung chicken painting! Did you know that he has received over 700,000 from the NRA? He was once quoted, "I'm a pro-life/pro-gun lifetime member of the NRA." He is owned by money and Trump, but he plays the down home "good guy" role well(oh but he is also on Emily's list for his stance on women's issues).
He is a master filibuster artist and sticks with the talking points so well you'd think he was a robot! Maybe he is!? Either way it is time to #vot#votehimout ✊🇺🇸
Another school shooting! More families lives torn apart! I studied mechanical engineering at Virginia Tech in the early 1980’s and I was devastated on April 16, 2007 when I learned 32 lives were taken at the engineering building on the campus where I spent many a day many years before by a disgruntled student. It’s a never ending storyline that affects students of all ages from elementary school, Sandy Hook in CT on December 14, 2012 where 20 children and 6 staff were slaughtered. On October 2, 2006 at the Amish girls school, West Nickels Mine School in PA 5 girls were shot to death. On April 20, 1999 at Columbine in CO where 2 students took over the school killing 12 students and 1 teacher. Now this shooting in Parkland, Fl claiming the lives of 17 is yet another school shooting! There have been so many school shootings it’s hard to keep track and yet the politicians who are supposed to protect us instead allow the NRA to line their pockets with massive contributions at the expense of young lives. If we can’t realize these changes for tighter gun reforms when will we be able to send our kids to school trusting that they will be safe when all the republicans care about is protecting the rights of gun holders while young kids die at the hands of gun toting murderers while they receive monies from the NRA to protect their interests! This is an outrage. What will it take? Politicians @gop losing their own children to guns in schools? Is that when they realize change must be made? They won’t do a damn thing until one of their own is killed by gun violence! #gunviolence#schoolshootings#massshooting#nra#gopsucks#guncontrol#gunreform#tragedy
