You could talk to parents of both sides of the political divide for days and weeks and months and you’d be hard pressed to find a single one who is happy with the performance of public education and how it has impacted their children. While the United States government throws countless dollars towards public education, all too often it appears that their money is being wasted and taxpayers are carrying all of the burdens. Betsy DeVos was nominated by President Trump to come into the Department of Education in order to make a change and that is exactly what she is doing. Betsy DeVos has ideas for education reform and the world is ready to listen.
Betsy DeVos first experienced the benefits and joy of the educational choice programs when she visited the Potter’s House Christian School in Michigan. She and her husband were looking for a school for their young children to attend. At the Potter’s House Christian School, DeVos marveled at how excited and energized teachers and students both were acting. She saw that this was very different from the traditional public school setting and she knew that there was something of merit here to pay attention to. Since that first meeting, Betsy and her husband Dick have poured countless hours of their own time working at the facility to go along with their own donations and financial contributions.
From the state of Michigan, Betsy DeVos comes to Washington D.C. with plenty of ideas but not much in the way of actual resume accreditations on the federal level. While this might sound like a negative, the truth is that Betsy DeVos and President Trump wouldn’t have her resume look any other way. Betsy DeVos has worked on several major education reform committees in Michigan and she has served on several GOP endorsed committees, including the Michigan Republican Party’s own committee. DeVos has a history of getting things done as a private citizen, so you can only imagine how much better she’ll be with the power of the federal government behind her.
Most importantly of all, Betsy DeVos is showing herself as someone who is capable of handling the intense and partisan politics that our country has been swallowed up by. As any of her political friends and enemies would say, Betsy DeVos is sharp in mind and quick of tongue, capable of going toe-to-toe with any of the establishment politicians in Washington D.C.
