Betsy DeVos Continues To Make Progress In Florida Where Charter Schools Are Slowly Spreading
Betsy DeVos grew up in Holland, Michigan where many people favored giving students multiple educational options. She was born into a Christian family and has continued to hold true to her values during her lifetime. She attended a private Christian high school during her earlier years and then completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in business economics during her time at Calvin College. While she was in college, she became enamoured by politics, and her interest in politics stayed with her after she graduated.
After finishing her degree, Betsy DeVos went on to serve her home state by serving as the chairman of the Michigan Republican Party. She also stood by her husband, Dick DeVos, during his bid to serve as the state’s governor. DeVos later worked with her husband to help pass legislation in Michigan that supported students by covering their tuition costs into charter schools. Her work in the state to help spread charter schools in various cities has been very successful, and she has also supported the expansion of charter schools in other U.S. states.
Betsy DeVos recently took part in an interview and was asked to talk about what she perceives as her biggest successes. During the interview, she commented she believes she helped to get a lot done in Florida. The state has been working to support its students for many years through educational choice legislation that she stood behind. Florida is now supporting thousands of students by covering their tuition fees into charter schools. Instead of taking all of the credit for the passing of important legislation in the state, she has been very clear about the important role that John Kirtley has played there.
Betsy DeVos recently paid a visit to Florida where she checked in with various schools in the state. She visited a private Christian school, charter schools, and even a traditional public school. While there, she made a surprise visit to a charter school named Slam that was created by Armando Christian Perez. She made news headlines by doing so because Perez is none other than the rapper Pitbull. His rap songs are known for their dirty lyrics, and this is why some people were taken aback when they heard about the visit.
Betsy DeVos has never been a woman who worries about what people think about her. Instead, she has continued to work hard to support educational choice and charter schools. This was the reason for her making the appearance with Pitbull at his charter school. The school has been in existence since 2013, and Pitbull has helped to create other charter schools in the state. DeVos is now looking towards the future and is hoping that people will soon see that there are many other educational options for students other than traditional public schools.
