The Incredible Philanthropic Success of Besty Devos
In the world of education, there are few that have made as big of a difference as Betsy Devos. While some may think that her ideas are quite radical, she is actually very practical and has a way of creating change that is long lasting. She realizes that it is only a matter of time until the current public education system becomes far too outdated. This is why she has pushed forward to reform the system that Americans have known for so long. Devos has a passion to be able to create educational options for families that would otherwise not have these options.
Devos started her passion for education reform early on in her life. Even during high school and college, Devos was passionate about a change from within. For more than 30 years, Devos has continued to push for reforms in schools and school boards that will make for a much more accessible learning experience which can be accessed by all different families. Devos was raised in a family that believed in giving. She learned from an early age that she needed to serve her fellow man in order to live a full and productive life.
Devos believes in publicly funded private school. She has also spent a great deal of time and effort creating organizations where she can give out scholarships to families that otherwise would not have the ability to send their children to the schools of their choice. She is a big advocate for private school vouchers that will allow more underprivileged children the ability to get a top-notch education.
Potter’s House is a great example of a private school that Devos has greatly helped to find the success it has. In Wyoming, Michigan, students have access to Chromebooks, ergonomic office chairs, and high-end teachers. Devos has provided her local area with the resources needed in order to give children the type of education they desperately need. Devos has a deep connection with the children at these school as well. She has even invited many of them over to holiday parties where she strategizes with them about how they are going to get into a good university.
The work that Devos is doing is going to continue to have a ripple effect for decades to come. When children have access to great educational opportunities, they go on to have great jobs and do great things with their lives. Devos has helped to raise the bar for standard education. If her example can help to change things, there will be many opportunities for students and parents who have higher expectations than what the traditional K-12 schools have to offer.
It will be exciting to see where the public opinion of Devos is aimed in the coming months and years. Her commitment to bringing the best educational experiences to families all over the country will most likely have her remembered ass a political and philanthropic leader who changed the way that this nation thinks about the way youth attend school.
