Betsy DeVos: Dedication to Education’

BetsyDeVos has proven to be one of the most tenacious and idealistic Presidential cabinet members in recent memory. Soon after he was inaugurated, President Trump appointed her as the Secretary of Education. In Mrs. DeVos, the President appointed a woman that is ready to fight for what she believes, whether she agreed with him or not.


She showed her independence when she disagreed with the President’s retraction of a law that allowed transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds to the gender in which they identify. Her deep concern for all American people was shown when she warned gay and transgender representatives of the coming change. Her maturity and commitment to unity was shown when she stood with the President and her choice to keep the disagreement behind closed doors.


Betsy DeVos has a long history of fighting for education. She was a staunch advocate of charter schools in her home state of Michigan and still touts the system as a way to reform the American education system. Throughout the years many opponents have learned that, though she seems unassuming and meek, she will fight tooth and nail for what she believes in.


People who know her do not worry about her lack of governmental experience on the federal level, or her lack of a past with President Trump. They expect her to learn quickly and have a real, positive, influence on American education.


Betsy DeVos grew up in Holland, Michigan. She worked her entire life and raised her family in the Michigan area. As mentioned earlier, she has been very active in the area’s education system. She has worked for nearly 30 years to steer tax dollars to charter schools. She believes that these schools will utilize the positive aspects of he free market to revolutionize education.


Betsy has not only based her political life on the idea of education reform but she also dedicates her philanthropic life to this goal. The DeVos family has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to the education system. She worked with multiple children’s charities and saw the need for education reform for the children and for the country.


Betsy DeVos has dedicated a massive amount of time and energy into helping children. Not long into her life she saw that the best way to improve children’s lives is to enhace their education. President Trump did not know her very well when he appointed her Secretary of Education, but her political life and philanthropy indicates that she has the intelligence, the guts, and the heart to effect real change in the American school system.
