Betsy DeVos was elevated to the role of Secretary of Education after being personally handpicked by President Donald Trump. As one of the most low-profile names in President Trump’s entire cabinet, which includes people like Ben Carson who was a former presidential candidate, Betsy DeVos is in a unique position where she has momentum by her side without a history of partisan attacks dragging her down. Now in Washington D.C. and confirmed by the Senate, Betsy DeVos is on a single-minded mission in order to reform public education forever. Let’s learn about Betsy DeVos, her work in education and what she plans to do for the country as a whole.
Coming into Washington D.C. by way of the 2016 Presidential Election meant that Betsy DeVos was going to be judged viciously by half of the country no matter what she did once in office. The partisan divide in America is bigger than ever and there is very little effort going toward bringing people together. With that being said, Betsy DeVos has never been the kind of person to back away from a challenge and she certainly isn’t going to let a hostile work environment prevent her from doing the job that she has been dreaming about her entire life. Betsy DeVos was born and raised as a staunch reformer and she has been handed the single most important job in the country for making her dreams become a reality.
As a devout woman of faith, DeVos was raised in a family that prided itself on the core tenets of religion and conservative ideology. She was raised her entire life with the mindset that, one day, she was going to be put into a situation where she could improve the world and leave it better than when she was born. For that reason, DeVos committed herself to education reformation at a fairly young age. In fact, DeVos has spent the past thirty years or so working hard to bring a revolution to the world of education. How has she done this? We’re glad that you asked.
Betsy DeVos, along with her husband Dick DeVos, have been prominent members of Michigan’s Republican party for decades. They’ve supported GOP campaigns and donated to the cause while also rallying around education reformation. The way that Betsy DeVos wants to change education is simple: she wants to make school choice a reality. By embracing school choice, and thus changing public education forever, Betsy DeVos has a chance to help future generations to come.
