Betsy DeVos recently surprised many people when she made a visit to a charter school with the rapper Pitbull. The rapper, whose real name is Armando Christian Pérez, is mainly known for his profane rap music, but many others know him as the man who has started up a set of charter schools. DeVos made the appearance with Pitbull because she supports charter schools, private schools, and the rights of Americans to be able to choose where they send their kids to school.
While some were confused by the visit, others were not; mainly because they know Betsy DeVos is the kind of woman who will do what needs to be done to help the American people. She was recently made the Secretary of Education for the United States, and she has been working hard since day one to see the changes she envisions for her country. She also visited an all-girls charter school in Washington and was joined by Queen Rania of Jordan and Melania Trump. She made a comment after the visit about how well the charter school has been doing to serve the needs of the kids who attend it. She also pointed out how beneficial it can be when parents have the opportunity to send their children to a school that they choose.
Betsy DeVos is proud to have been a part of the educational choice movement before it gained the attention it has today. In the past, the movement has been seen as radical and outside of the box, but she never let any criticism deter her from her goal. When asked if she was happy with the progress that the movement has made, she pointed to statistics which state that 250,000 students are able to attend schools of their family’s choosing due to a spread of publicly funded programs all over the U.S.A. She also commented that new states are joining in to offer their residents educational choice, and some of these include Virginia, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Mississippi, and New Hampshire.
Betsy DeVos has dedicated a good portion of her life to the educational choice movement, which hopes to see American families being able to use public funding to pay for the tuition costs of their children so they can attend a private or charter school. She not only donates her time to the cause but has supported it through millions of dollars of donations. Today, she is working with people from both sides of the political aisle in order to make the United States a better place for the people that call the country their home.
