The Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, is making headlines again and showing that her voice will be heard. She has been the center of attention on the Washington Post for quite some time now. The latest article, ” Betsy DeVos and Democrats call for Congressional hearings in the wake of Florida School shooting,” proves she is the right person for the job. The article was published on February 16, 2018. It was written by Morich Balingit.
The article discusses how Betsy DeVos recently stood up and called to order a congressional hearing recently. This request was made after the most recent tragedy in Florida. Mrs. DeVos, and many of her congressional peers, are quite concerned with the current health and safety of our nation’s younger generation. This concern far exceeds the typical concerns, as Mrs. DeVos is adamant that changes be taken place to help address the mental health issues that plague our country. She was quoted as stating that there has been a lot of talk about making changes over the years. However, nothing has been done to rectify the situation, which appears to be continuing to escalate.
Mrs. DeVos is also very outspoken about her opinions on the current gun laws that are in affect. Her opinions are quite different than many others, that guns do belong in schools. Armed security officers, and other common sense gun laws, are among the many ideas that she, and others, would like to explore.
It is time to stop talking about changes and make changes happen. Betsy DeVos has a proven track record in the Michigan school systems. She has spent over twenty years helping better the education system in the area for all children, regardless of family income. She has sat on numerous school boards, charity committees, and helped raise funds for numerous reasons. Mrs. DeVos has also helped to change laws in her hometown so that parents have more choices in where their children receive their educations.
Since her appointment as Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos has been a very outspoken cabinet member. She addressed transgender bathroom issues, is an active participant in the ongoing free speech issues at the college campuses, and is now involved in the gun safety and mental health issues. There is little doubt that Mrs. DeVos is here to help shape the future our our education system and country as a whole.
Betsy DeVos is a mother and grandmother. She is also the wife of Dick DeVos. They are both heirs to vast fortunes and opportunity. Unlike so many others in their positions, Betsy and Dick DeVos have dedicated their lives to helping those who are less fortunate than them.
