The American Education Sector Is In The Hands of Business Leader Betsy DeVos

Betsy DeVos’ bid to improve the American school system has attracted attention and criticism in equal measure. The public is following closely what the business leader and philanthropist is going to achieve in her role as the United States Secretary of Education. Betsy got her new job in the Trump administration because of her vast experience in the education sector working with charter and schools of choice. Before she got the post of cabinet secretary for education, Betsy had carried out extensive programs that afforded many students from marginalized communities access quality education.

 

On top of the agenda on Betsy DeVos’ master plan to revive the American education system is the privation of schools. A while back, Betsy DeVos did a personal assessment on how choice schools were helping students achieve their individual needs in education. This study was done at Holy Comforter and Florida High Schools. Such an initiative is in line with Betsy DeVos’ campaign for the popularization of choice schools and charter institutions. Betsy believes that community schools have a place in the modern curriculum and they should not be left behind when people are looking for wholesome solutions to problems in the society.

 

According to Betsy DeVos, we cannot expect excellent results if we continue relying on a curriculum that doesn’t address the needs of today. There needs to be a paradigm shift on how America handles her educational issues.

 

Betsy DeVos has been on the frontline in agitating for school vouchers, scholarships or grants to marginalized children and funding of charter schools. Before Betsy joined Trump’s administration, she devoted most of her time in charity work and engaging with families from marginalized regions.

 

Betsy DeVos wouldn’t have achieved much had she been on her own. The business leader enjoys the support of her husband Dick DeVos who is also actively involved in philanthropy. The couple has worked together on countless occasions to bring life-changing programs to the communities of Michigan. Betsy DeVos is the best example of how individuals can take a leading role in bringing change to the society. Her constant involvement with what is suitable for the American children has distinguished her as a woman of influence and change.

 

Not only has Besty succeeded in building an illustrious career in philanthropy, but she has also managed to create her space in the American politics. Betsy is committed to creating impact in the communities of Michigan and the entire nation at large.
