Betsy DeVos Discusses the Future of the American School Choice Education Sector

Betsy is a pioneer in the school choice movement in America. She’s championed the reform of the education sector since the early 80’s. She advocates for educational reforms to give parents all sorts of choices. To achieve that, she works closely with the politicians to amend the existing school choice legislations.

Equal Opportunities to All

Betsy’s organization has made some tremendous strides in the last five years. The establishment has a prominent presence in over 24 states. Thanks to her tireless effort, kids and parents from low-income brackets in her home state, Florida and elsewhere, have the opportunity to compete on the same level platforms as those from wealthy backgrounds.American Foundation for Children provides the following broad range of free choices to parents and students:-

  • Private School Learning
  • Charter School Learning
  • Educations Savings Account
  • Lunch Vouchers
  • Tax Credits
  • Blended Learning
  • Virtual Learning
  • Homeschooling

Speaking in a past interview, Betsy revealed the astonishing strides made by her organization, the American Foundation for Children, over the past 35 years. AFC had amassed a membership of over 250,000 students. The organization had around 10,000 students under the private-choice voucher programs.

Porter’s House Christian School

Potter’s House Christian School in Grand Rapids, Michigan was the first educational institution Betsy and Dick DeVos ever worked with. Betsy’s lifelong quest has culminated in milestone reforms in the private education sector in America. In 1993, Betsy is credited with the introduction of Michigan’s first school choice bill. The couple supports these schools by issuing scholarships and money to the institutions.

Success in Florida

In 2013, an estimated 50,000 Florida kids and homes were on pro-choice programs. That number expected to surge and soar in coming years, according to Betsy DeVos. The iron-willed reformer planned to expand the AFC movement to states like Indiana and Louisiana. The Education Secretary is very proud of the progress made in the state of Florida. Today, Florida has one of the leading school choice programs in place than anywhere else in the nation.

Bipartisan Politics

DeVos continues to fight an uphill battle with the Democrats. Her opponents have done everything in their power and influence to make sure her bills don’t pass the early stages. Betsy reminds the Democrats that the future of the nation lies at stake. If the leaders don’t put aside their differences to work for the common good of the ailing American education system, then we are all doomed, Mrs. DeVos sums up.
