Posted on October 10, 2017 By

Betsy DeVos is among the few high profile individuals in the United States who keep agitating for reforms in the education sector. Since her appointment to the Trump’s cabinet as the Secretary of Education, Betsy’s has only gathered even more momentum in her quest to ensure that every student in the United States stands an equal chance to access quality education. Over the past few days, Betsy DeVos has had a busy traveling schedule to schools in different regions across the US.


Some of the reforms that Betsy DeVos has been vocal about including the privatization of schools. Recently she visited Holy Comforter and Florida High institutions so that she could get firsthand information on how the schools are students meet their specific needs in education. Such a move is in line with Betsy campaign for choice schools and charter institutions. Betsy DeVos believes that for a long time, community schools have found themselves in a situation whereby they are approaching curriculum challenges the same way they did hundreds of years ago. Like we all know, one cannot use the same strategy always to solve the same problem and expect different results. According to the cabinet secretary, there needs to be a paradigm shift in the handling of educational matters in the United States.


Betsy DeVos has been an unflinching supporter of school vouchers, scholarships for the marginalized students and the funding of charter schools. Before Betsy joined the Trump government, she devoted most of her time in mobilizing individuals who shared the same convictions on the American education system.


Betsy DeVos alongside his husband Dick DeVos has always worked to ensure that many households in America benefit from a vibrant education sector. Through the Dick and Betsy DeVos family foundation, the couple has been the source of happiness to many homes. Betsy remains to be an apt example of how good deeds can go a long way in making the world a better place for everyone. The family charity is focused on nurturing a new crop of leaders and professionals who will shape the American economy and politics. Betsy’s agitation for charter schools shows that she is ready to tackle the challenges that affect the American education industry with new ideas. The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation are well known for its involvement with charitable courses across the US.
