Betsy DeVos Brings Conservative Ideology to Education Reform

Betsy DeVos was born and raised in a family that prided itself on bringing change to the world. Born into a reformer family, Betsy DeVos knew that she’d have to follow her passion in order to render positive change in the world. After attending Calvin College, DeVos would discover that her passion was education reform. After graduating, Betsy would meet Dick DeVos, former CEO of Amway, and the two would get married. For decades, the DeVos’ would focus on highlighting educational choice and all of its benefits. Now, as the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos is going to try to bring the concept into the mainstream world of conservative America.

 

Educational choice is such an important topic to Betsy DeVos because she has seen its impact firsthand. While looking for a school to send their children to, the DeVos family would visit the Potter’s House Christian School. Upon visiting the school, Betsy was blown away by how the children were charged to learn and the teachers were just as energized. DeVos couldn’t believe how happy and positive the school was, especially in comparison to the struggling public schools that dot Michigan’s landscape. DeVos knew then and there that she’d have to champion education reform at the highest levels.

 

Since being brought into President Trump’s high-ranking cabinet, Betsy DeVos has quickly established herself as someone who knows what they are doing and is willing to fight for it. DeVos was known as a political gamer back in Michigan, but her colleagues in Washington D.C. didn’t know what they’d be getting out of her. Some people thought that DeVos would pale under the bright lights, while others believed that she’d be pushed around by the longer-standing members of the Hill. The truth is, Betsy DeVos came to Washington D.C. and immediately began to flourish.

 

After being confirmed by the Senate, Betsy DeVos would call an important meeting with the highest-ranking leaders of the teacher’s unions in America. The majority of union leaders that DeVos called upon would end up snubbing her invitation. Of the few union leaders that arrived, they all left with the same impression: DeVos wasn’t someone that could be pushed around. Randi Weingarten, the President of the American Federation of Teachers, found DeVos to be both well-spoken and dangerous. Weingarten went on to add that she believed that people were underestimating Betsy DeVos.

 

Betsy DeVos’ meteoric ascent to the top of the Department of Education should come as no surprise to the people that knew her. DeVos has spent the past 30+ years working on boards and forums for philanthropies that focused entirely on education reform. DeVos has committed her entire life to bring education reform to America and now she is getting her chance.
