i like this recent @Noahpinion post on broad #STEM education a lot. but the mention about #math curricula changes in #Virginia can use some more nuance—and i think they can help get to what Noah’s (and many of us) are looking for in our workforce. /1
this explainer from @hannah_natanson helps explain the noise brought up from FoxNews and other outlets. /2…

If a country cannot manage its own affairs, how can it manage the affairs of others. You cannot "love thy neighbor" while treating your family like shit. #AmericaLast
@congressdotgov @HouseFloor @SenateFloor and @WhiteHouse betrayed American citizens. They betray America's trust. They are NOT complicit! They fail[ed] to comply with the Declaration & Constitution by which this country was founded. They act with purposeful disregard.
States are willful accomplices to the United States Federal Government.

ALL of America's private citizens and friends need to request our US Military cleanse our government! @USArmy #USArmy @USMC #USMC @USNavy #USNavy @usairforce #USAF @DeptofDefense #DoD @US_SpaceCom #SpaceX
