A New Day For American Education
The nomination and Senate approval of Betsy Devos has sparked a revolution in education. Our public schools have failed to educate our youth and continue to cater exclusively to the interests of teacher unions. Devos does not believe this is necessary and plans on doing everything she can to change it. She wants to fight to create an education system that allows parents to choose the schools their kids go to and play a more important role in the education their kids receive. This will no longer happen under her watch as the Secretary of Education for the United States of America.
Changing Education In Michigan
A great example of the work of Betsy Devos is easily seen in her home state of Michigan. Public schools in Michigan simply aren’t up to the task of educating children and have left many children without the education they need. In order to combat this Devos has supported school voucher programs in her state. The results of these voucher programs is already evident in the success seen in Detroit. In contrast to the failing public schools of Detroit the children in these programs thrived and actually received better scores than the average for their state.
Restoring Faith In American Education
Faith is an extremely important issue for Devos. She has identified as a Christian for her entire life and she continues to practice her faith. In addition to improving the quality of American education she wants to bring faith back in education as well. The efforts to reduce the role faith plays in the public school has caused harm to American youth and misdirected them. Creating an education policy with a stronger focus on providing them with a stronger sense of faith is a top priority of Betsy Devos.
Answering A Higher Calling
President Donald Trump has chosen Betsy Devos to lead the Department of Education. In her position as Secretary of Education she will oversee the official federal policy regarding education and decide exactly how the American education system around the country will operate. Her plan is to execute policies similar to those she advocated for in Michigan. This means she will most likely push for school choice and voucher programs. These programs were successful in Michigan and they are likely to succeed across the country.
