Betsy DeVos Is Not The Woman That The Democratic Party Has Made Her Out To Be

Many Americans had never heard of Betsy DeVos before she became the Secretary of Education for the United States. During her confirmation hearings, her opposition made it appear as if she had no idea what she was doing. There have been a few other incidences since she has come to Washington that have also made her appear as if she will be a quiet player in the politics of one of the greatest nations in the world. For those who are closest to the woman and for those who have been living in the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan, or in the state of Michigan for that matter, this is completely opposite to the political reformer and fighter that they have grown to become more familiar with.

 

As a philanthropist, Betsy DeVos has done so much for her home-state of Michigan where she was born and raised. She attended a private Christian High School in Holland, Michigan when she was younger and went on to graduate from Calvin College, a private college, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Economics. She also became very involved in politics on the campus and has continued to be involved with the politics in Michigan. She was a local precinct delegate for the Michigan Republican party, and she also served as the Chairwoman of the Michigan Republican party for four years. Her political opponents in Michigan have called her a fierce opponent and a woman who is as persistent as she is determined. They also know her as a reformer who has continually worked to see educational choice put into the hands of American families.

 

While many democrats usually have nothing good to say about their opposition, that is not the case when it comes to Betsy DeVos. It is true that most Democrats don’t agree with a lot of her stances of political issues but they do respect the woman. The President of the American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten, who mostly supports Democrats, acknowledged that a lot of people tend to underestimate Betsy DeVos. He commented that while she may appear to be plain-spoken and down to earth, she is also a dangerous political opponent to face.

 

One of the mountains that Betsy DeVos has had to climb is the fact that a lot of her opposition believes she is against public schools. She has already addressed some of their concerns by saying that she expects most American children will continue to attend public schools. On the other hand, she has also been very forward about her support of private schools and charter schools and has, in fact, fought for most of her life so that families in the United States can send their kids off to a school they choose. In Grand Rapids, Michigan, she supported the Potter’s House, which is a K-12 Christian school that is highly diverse. She has also supported numerous other private and charter schools in the state as well as other states. It is her mission to put the choice of where kids receive their education in the hands of their parents, and many see this as a good thing.

Betsy DeVos Taking Up Her New Position In Trump’s Government

Few hours prior to the move President Trump made of nullifying a national dogma that gave way for students who are transgender to be free to use the bathrooms in school that are in line with their identity, his secretary for education, Betsy DeVos, had a brief meeting with a certain representative of the transgender and gay workers at the department of education. She was said to have given a warning to the representative concerning what was to occur.

 

Word went round that Ms. DeVos, in her own opinion, was not up for the change that had been made by President Trump. Despite that she offered no public alert that she was against it. Instead, she was there being part of the new policy and even went on to give a briefing to the Conservative Political Action Conference saying that the previous national guidelines were really a great example of the outwit that was in the earlier administration under the reign of Barrack Obama.

 

However, quite a number of individuals who have worked and associated with Ms. DeVos in her working years have put out a stern warning that she can be a two sided person. They say that she can be so amiable in the eyes of the public yet have an opposite of what she displays behind closed doors. However, in her home area she has a very good reputation of an individual who is a very efficient fighter, and who goes a step further in using the great wealth in her family to punish wrong doers and reward those who work in conjunction with her.

 

In the politics of Michigan, she was feared by a lot of people not only because of the fact that she is so wealthy, but also she happens to be a very focused lady and once she sets her mind on a particular objective, there is no turning back for her.

 

When Ms. DeVos came to Washington, she had zero experience working with or for the government, and at the same time could not make up a large part of her relation with the president. She was presented to a particular department where she moved up the ladder so fast and overtook various positions in it, a great feat considering the department in most cases had its upper levels unoccupied.

 

Her disagreement concerning the access of bathrooms for the transgender put her in a position of doubt in the eyes of an Attorney General by the name Jeff Sessions, who for a long time was a man that President Trump listened to. Nevertheless, a large number of people have mentioned that they have high expectations in her that she will be quick at learning how everything works and eventually find her way around.

 

For a long time in her line of work, it has been noticed that she had no endearment to public schools because everything she did concerning schools was in favor of private ones. Some say it could be for the fact that she had never had any experience in a public institution.
