Betsy DeVos: An Example Of Someone Who Knows How Fortunate She Is

A lot of people that are very fortunate do not realize how fortunate they are. In many cases, those people tend to hoard and keep to themselves. They feel that they do not have enough. One way or another, they feel that life has dealt them something that is unfavorable. However, there are people who know just how fortunate they are. While they have lived the type of life that they can be proud of, they do understand that there are a lot of factors at play. Among the factors at play are their upbringing, their education, the people that are in their lives, and other factors.

Among the people that realize their fortune is Betsy DeVos, the wife of Dick DeVos. She has always lived a respectable life. However, she understands that if it wasn’t for a good upbringing, she might not have gotten to experience the type of admirable life that she has lived. Therefore, she looks at people and the world through the lens of compassion. This is one of the reasons that she is involved in not only giving to the community, but also putting together some options for children to get better upbringings so that they will likely develop the same sense of charity that Betsy has developed.

While a lot of people run for government offices for different reasons, Betsy DeVos has run with the purpose of bringing improvements to education. For one thing, she wants all children to have the same high quality of education that is only available in safer communities. When children are living without the distractions, they are better able to retain the information they get in classes. They are also better able to pass their class with high grades.

Betsy DeVos has encouraged communities to adapt the school choice initiative. This is the chance for people to go to different schools without having to pay for it because of public funding. After all, money is hard to come by. It is very rare for people to have the funding to send their children to the schools that they want them to go to.
