Betsy DeVos’s Beliefs on the Education System

Betsy DeVos was appointed as the Secretary of Education earlier this year, paving the way for changes within the entire department now under control of the Republican party.

 

Transgender Rights Reversed

Education secretary Betsy Devos has a brief meeting with the Education Department’s representative of gay and transgender employees to warn them in advance of President Trump’s impending actions to repeal the federal restroom policy for transgender students set in place under the Obama administration.

 

During the meeting, she an aide assured the representative that Ms. DeVos tried to prevent the reversal from happening, although she gave no public sign of her opposition. DeVos joined Trump in announcing the new policy, followed by an announcement on Thursday to the Conservative Political Action Conference that the guidelines were a prime example of what she stated as an example of the ‘Obama Administration’s overreach’.

 

DeVos’ Political Background

Individuals who had the opportunity to interact and observe Ms. DeVos over the years during her time as a leading advocate of charter schools and school vouchers, as well as a Michigan Republican Party chairwoman (96-00) and major donor to the Republican party, have warned others that she will be a rather submissive team player for the Education System.

 

In her home state, she maintained the reputation of a relentlessly determined individual that was effective in achieving her goals while utilizing her family’s fortune. She instilled fear in opposing individuals in order to pass legislation and unseat lawmakers who stood against her. Mike Cox, a former state attorney general, explained that she did so, not only because she is a billionaire but because she is very determined to achieve goals once she develops them. DeVos used her wealth to punish those in opposition while also rewarding individuals who stood beside her in support.

 

Critics and admirers expect DeVos to build ties within the Education Department and get her way, regardless of the fact that she has no experience inside government and minimal history with the president.

 

Background Influencing DeVos’s View on Funding

Over the years, DeVos and her husband have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to Potter’s House, a K-12 Christian school five miles outside of Grand Rapids. Given DeVos’s cultural ties to the Netherlands and her hometown’s ethnics, it is no surprise to many that she believes public schools do no deserve equal public funding. In the late 1800s, there was a great debate over what public education should look like.

 

Several Liberal politicians believed secular public schools as opposed to religious schools, which they believed did not deserve equal public funding. Critics see a clear violation of the commitment to separate church and state, while others view it as a basis for equal treatment.

 

Given the push to utilize public funding within the private education system, as well as the quick tackle of transgender rights, it is difficult to tell if there is a true separation of public and church or if the entire system is moving toward combining the two once and for all.

Betsy Devos; Changing The Educational Landscape

Betsy DeVos, the 11th and current Secretary of Education of the United States is all set to renew the state’s involvement and interest in the development of education for America.

She has been actively involved in the movement for the right to one’s choice and school preferences, having been an advocate of school voucher programs, school choice and charter schools as well as her help with the Reformed Christian Community.

Betsy Devos rose to the title of Republican National Committeewoman of Michigan from the years 1992-1997, during which time she also held the position of chairwoman for the Michigan Republican Party between 1996 to 2000, and even ended up being re-elected for the same in the year 2003.

Devos has been a long and faithful advocate for the Detroit charter school system and became a board member for the Foundation for Excellence in Education.

It’s hardly surprising that she be the pick for Secretary of Education considering that she’s also been board chairwoman for Alliance for School Choice and Action Institute, heading all matter children related.

DeVos, raised and born in Holland, is no stranger to leadership, having been exposed to her father, Edgar Prince’s vast empire at a young age.

The vast wealth that she has been pivotal in creating and maintaining over the years has not blinded her loyalties to her faith and alma mater, having made significant donations to Calvin College, the Christian Reformed school run in Michigan, which she attended after the Holland Christian High School.

Her deep concern for the future of education is apparent in her massive philanthropy and activism of the same; it’s about time America embraced the unique insights a businesswoman has to offer to the world of learning.

DeVos has many a time mentioned her passionate vision for every family in the United States to have a broad choice of education. This includes the privatization of education, diversion of public funds to religious and private schools and the installation of voucher programs for schools. She also mentioned the need for digital learning and homeschooling as accessible options under her movement titled ‘educational choice’. Read more news on CNN.

 

The failure of securing voucher legislation in the year 2000 in Michigan did not deter this resilient couple team, who went on to tackle the issue at a grassroots level, an alternative that many in her position would consider beneath themselves. The couple then went ahead putting together a large number of non-profit organizations and fundraisers, pushing their agenda at the local level in a practical and endearing way, winning the hearts of American households.
