Betsy DeVos made a lot of people turn their heads recently when she visited a charter school that was founded by the rapper Pitbull. She did so during a visit to the state of Florida where she was showing her dedication to private and charter schools. She has visited Florida three times as the Secretary of Education for the United States and has shined a light on the progress that the state has been making to give its residents true freedom of educational choice. She hopes that the state will continue to pass legislation that allows vouchers or voucher-like programs to pay for the tuition of private and charter schools.
Betsy DeVos visited many other private and charter schools in the state including SLAM Charter School. She also paid a visit to traditional public schools including Royal Palm Elementary. Pitbull has opened many different charter schools in Florida, and DeVos has indicated that the state is a model for the success of voucher-like programs. These programs allow public funds to pay for the tuition of private and charter schools, and they are a huge help to economically challenged families who find it extremely difficult to afford to cost of these kinds of schools.
Betsy DeVos has been very outspoken about the fact that many public schools are failing the kids who attend them. She feels like we owe them a better chance at life and that there is no reason why we shouldn’t support any family’s decision to send their kid to the right school for them. When asked how the fight for educational choice is going, she has recently commented that it is going well and that there are now close to 250,000 students who are in publicly funded programs that allow them to attend a school that their family has chosen. She also revealed that 17 states in the United States are participating in these kinds of programs and that this number is growing every year.
Betsy DeVos has served as a board member with the American Education Reform Council and Children First America, which are both organizations dedicated to educational choice in the U.S.A. It was also the work of her husband, Dick DeVos, and herself that led to the first charter-school bill being passed in 1993 in the state of Michigan. She also helped to form the Great Lakes Education Project after a constitutional amendment proposition had been defeated. After seeing a lot of success with her efforts in the state of Michigan, people there began to say that they hoped this would become a national movement. She completely agrees, and as the Secretary of Education for the United States, she plans on working hard to serve every single family in the nation.
