Under Trump, Liberals Rediscover School Segregation 11.8.2017 American Prospect
(Tom Sherlin/The Daily Times via AP) Protesters gather on January 30, 2017, in front of Senator Lamar Alexander's office in Knoxville, Tennessee, to object to the nomination of Betsy DeVos. At the American Federation of Teachers’ biannual TEACH conference in July, union president Randi Weingarten gave a provocative speech about school choice, privatization, and Donald Trump’s secretary of education. “Betsy DeVos is a public school denier, denying the good in our public schools and their foundational place in our democracy,” Weingarten declared. “Her record back in Michigan, and now in Washington, makes it clear that she is the most anti–public education secretary of education ever.” But it was Weingarten’s remarks about choice and segregation that ultimately drew the most fire: She highlighted politicians who had used school choice as a way to resist integration following Brown v.

How Welfare's Work Requirements Can Deepen and Prolong Poverty 10.8.2017 Truthout.com
After "Rose" lost her low-wage job in a southeast Michigan nursing home, the single mother of four sought Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) benefits.  People who are eligible for this federal, time-limited welfare program for very low-income families must be  working or looking for work , a feature the Trump administration and other politicians want to spread to Medicaid and other similar programs that support low-income Americans.

Like many experts on American poverty relief, I don't see why that punitive strategy makes sense.  Work Requirements When Rose told me her story while I was researching what happens to women like her, she started by saying, "I'm ashamed."
