Generally, it is acknowledged that quality education systems rely on the quality of teachers and their expertise in various subjects. Well this is because teachers are solely responsible for making sure that students are prepared to handle their exams at the right time and place. Also, teachers are trusted to assist students in meeting their new challenges. That is why these teachers must be provided with better teaching environments. Also, students must be presented with the right environment to deliver best results. This explains the value of having education reforms. Betsy DeVos is one individual who has taken it upon herself to revolutionize the education system by injecting in some reforms.
DeVos is married to Dick DeVos and have always worked as a team. But most importantly is the fact that she has often worked in different companies that chair education reforms as well. For starters, Betsy has worked for American Federation for Children as the head cheerleader. She has also worked for Alliance Schools of Choice and Art Prize. Additional organizations she has worked for include The Potter’s House where she learned that most students barely have the opportunity to learn from comfortable environment. Betsy DeVos therefore, decided to take it upon herself and make sure that such students can access better education. That marked the beginning of education reforms in the world of Betsy DeVos and other scholars who were a little sidelined.
