Betsy DeVos Is Changing Minds And Hearts With Her Continued Passion For Educational Choice
Educational choice is an idea that has taken root in the minds of many people in the United States. It is the idea that every single student in the United States deserves to have equal access to educational opportunities. As it stands, most students in the nation are forced to attend a school that matches up with their zip code. Betsy DeVos finds this absolutely ridiculous, and she continues to serve the people of the U.S.A. by donating her time and money to give them better educational opportunities.
Betsy DeVos has demonstrated her willingness to think outside of the box when it comes to making new alliances who share her view. She is a conservative Christian, but she was willing to make a public appearance with Armando Christian Perez, who also goes by the title “Pitbull.” Perez is a rapper who is known for his misogynistic-themed rap music and his tendency to fill his rap titles with curse words. DeVos joined him during the opening of one of his new charter schools in Florida to help support the cause of educational choice.
Betsy DeVos has also revealed that the movement has seen major traction in Indiana and Louisiana. Between the two states, close to one million students can attend a school that their families approve of. DeVos admitted in a recent interview that she has supported legislation and politicians in those states that are allies to her educational ideas. She also worked with the American Federation for Children to help reform the educational system.
Betsy DeVos has had to battle against Democrats who are backed by teachers’ unions, and this has made the battle an uphill one. Instead of running away from the problem, she has worked directly with Democrats to help them feel safe if they decide to support educational choice. While her cause has been supported mainly by Republicans, she admits that more Democrats are joining every day.
Betsy DeVos recently spoke about how Louisiana is breaking barriers due to the fact that Democrats in that state have been the ones supporting new educational choice bills. She has continued to work with other Democrats who are beginning to see the benefits of this kind of legislation. Educational choice is something that mainly benefits lower income families who can’t afford to pay the tuition fees for the children to attend private schools and charter schools. It isn’t difficult to understand the benefits that this kind of legislation will bring to these families, and Betsy DeVos hopes that more politicians will begin to support the cause in the near future.
