It was nice knowin ya. And before anyone tells me to “just give her a chance!!!1!”, let’s take a look at what this demon has done and what she PLANS to do: She plagiarized a quote from the Obama administration (how ironic). Wants to pay the CEOs of charter schools more money instead of helping the students and giving more money to the actual TEACHERS Wants to force the Christian religion into public schools making it “God’s Kingdom”  Doesn’t care about the serious sexual assault problems on college campuses  Wants more guns in schools in case a “grizzly bear” breaks in (wow such a potential threat!)  She pretty much has NO experience with student loans or how student loans work  SHE HAS LITERALLY NEVER WORKED IN PUBLIC EDUCATION SHE IS JUST A FUCKING BUSINESSWOMAN  Doesn’t understand the importance of protecting kids with disabilities  So yeah….. just when you thought the American school system was messy enough, it’s about to get messier.  everyone who is out of high school: pls do EVERYTHING in ur power to give any folks who have not graduated yet as much of a good education as u can. share books w them. talk to them. volunteer at an after school program or as a tutor or babysit some kids if u can. WE NEED TO GET THROUGH TO THEM. the indoctrination of youth with fascist ideals is probably the most terrifying thing i can think of happening because that shapes the world for like 2-3 generations. we NEED to raise a radical generation. u dont have to be a teacher or have kids to connect w them. please please dont fail these children

Apple, Detroit, and Finance: Meet Suzanne Shank, a $2-trillion businesswoman cofounder & CEO of Siebert Branford Shank, the most successful black woman on Wall Street. Suzanne Shank is a $2-trillion businesswoman whom few Detroiters have heard of. Shank, cofounder and CEO of Siebert Branford Shank, is one of the most successful African-American women on Wall Street. Under her watch and from her offices in the Buhl Building in Detroit, her firm has grown by arranging billions upon billions in financing for airports, roads, schools and other municipal and corporate projects across the nation. Her company got another stamp of approval Wednesday when it was selected by the New York City Transitional Finance Authority to serve as lead manager for an $800-million New York City deal coming to market later this month. And it was one of three firms selected to lead transactions for the New York Water Authority. Though technically headquartered in New York City, Shank has stayed in Detroit to run the company — one of the largest female- and minority-owned privately held finance firms in the country —– from the Motor City. “I like the address — 100 Wall Street,” she said, because, you know, the Big Apple is the financial hub of the country. She said it made sense to keep the company located there as her employees often deal with Wall Street. Shank’s story is fascinating and shows how talent, hard work and ability to embrace change can have remarkable outcomes. Though she prefers to be behind the scenes, I had a chance to talk with her in front of a sold-out audience of nearly 900 people at Inforum’s 54th annual luncheon gala June 21. Held at the Westin Book Cadillac, the event spilled into a second ballroom on another floor so more folks could hear Shank’s story via a large-screen TV. And another 75 people in Grand Rapids attended Inforum’s gathering via satellite. “The meeting quickly sold out due to Suzanne’s stature as a major player on Wall Street and her commitment to remaining deeply involved in Detroit,” said Terry Barclay, president and CEO of Inforum. Shank grew up in a middle-class family. A gifted child who could read by age 3 and excelled at math and science, Mediaoutrage suzanneshank blackbusiness success blackwomen
