Betsy DeVos Sworn In As Sec. Of Education

Betsy DeVos was recently sworn in as Secretary of Education of the Trump Administration. Before her nomination, she was on the forefront of education in the state of Michigan for several years. She is also the wife of billionaire businessman and philanthropist Richard Dick DeVos. She has also served as National Chairwoman of the Republican Party for over 12 years.

 

The former Betsy Prince, was born to Edgar and Elsa Prince. Her father was a billionaire industrialist who founded the Prince Corporation. Her brother, Erik, is the founder and CEO of Blackwater USA.

 

Prince has always been outspoken in her political beliefs. While in college, she was heavily involved in campus politics and educational initiatives to help children. After graduating from Calvin College with a degree in economics, she began involving herself in local politics.

 

DeVos married into one of the wealthiest families in the U.S. She and her husband have been married for over 30 years and have four children and five grandchildren. Many people applaud DeVos for her behind the scenes work with the Republican Party. She has been one of the most successful fundraisers, having personally raised over $250,000 for George W. Bush’s reelection campaign in 2004.

 

DeVos is a huge supporter of the voucher program and school choice. She has been open in her feelings regarding families having the choice to decide where their children attend school. DeVos served as president of the Alliance For School Choice. She and her husband tried numerous times to get the school choice initiative on the ballot. When she finally did, it was voted down. DeVos and her husband also established annual scholarships to help children who want to attend college but cannot afford it.

 

When Trump began looking for a Secretary of Education to replace the outgoing Phil Rosenfelt, DeVos’ name was at the top of the list. She received high praise from Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney. After her confirmation hearing, which began on Jan. 17, 2017, she was confirmed on Feb. 2, 2017. DeVos says she will run the Department of Education with the same thirst for providing a sound education for all that she did in Michigan.
