Having the ability to choose a diverse education is something that was previously reserved for those who were able to make a lot of money. These were the people who were able to spend a lot of money on their children’s’ educations and it was something that set them apart from those who did not have a lot of money. While it wasn’t necessarily fair, it was something that happened as a direct result of the public school system. The people who were not able to get what they needed were those who were poor and could not afford a great education. Betsy DeVos wanted to change that and did everything that she could to make sure that even those who were not able to afford that type of education were getting what they needed out of it. This was something that Betsy DeVos worked on for many years and something that she still continues to do as the secretary of education.
Starting out over 20 years ago, Betsy DeVos wanted to see the difference in what things would be like for people who were poor and could not afford private education. She wanted to come up with something that would make it easier for people to do new things and to try new things for their children. Because of the way that Betsy DeVos did things with educational opportunities, she was able to help those who were very poor and who could not go to private school because they were so poor.
Starting out with the voucher program was something that Betsy DeVos knew that she needed to do. The voucher program allowed people to make sure that they were going to a private school without ever having to pay for it. Similar to a public school, the government paid for the vouchers. The people who had the vouchers would then give them to the private school which would pay for the child’s tuition depending on the amount that it was at that point in time. It worked well and Betsy DeVos was pleased with the way that she was able to help children get a better education through the program.
Recently, charter schools have been popping up all around the United States. This is something that has been done by Betsy DeVos and the foundation that she has to make things better for children. The charter schools allow the children to get a private education even if they don’t have the resources that they need to be able to do so. This is something that has been helpful for all of these children and something that has made a huge difference. They don’t even need vouchers for charter school.
