The policies that Mrs. DeVos has been advocating for have enabled children to choose learning institutions that they would like to attend. The current education system forces individuals to enroll at schools that are located in their neighborhoods. Parents from low-income areas were very concerned since their children could not be admitted into good schools. Betsy’s passion has enabled her to deliver excellent results in all the work that she does.
Apart from her activities in the education sector, Mrs. DeVos has been actively taking part in political undertakings for about three decades. In 1976, she offered to join a group of volunteers who campaigned for President Gerald Ford during the general elections. She then became a member of the Republican Party and was appointed as Michigan’s delegate to the party. Betsy had an opportunity to be on the Republican National Committee for about six years (1992 to 1998). Her family has offered millions of dollars to assist in the campaigns of Republican Party candidates. They supported President Bush’s reelection in 2002.
