Everyone you see is passionate about something. People who do what they love find obstacles their staircase to the top. Many people have become successful in what they do because they are passionate about it. They face challenges in their career or business ventures, but they still thrive because of the passion they have. People with a burning passion for something find it easy to persevere when things don’t go right. The passion they have makes them know they can become anything if they don’t give up on the way.

We live in a society where we go to school based on our location or our ZIP Code. The schools that we go to maybe exceptional or subpar, in many ways it feels as though it is the luck of the draw. The quality of the school can shift based on staff turnover and educational standards, there is no mandate for educational consistency. Throughout all of this, parents are sent home memos to let them know about their children’s progress, but they are never truly immersed in the world of their children. They may be invited to come see a school play every now and then or seek to their children’s teacher on a parent-teacher night, but there never asked to give an input on their children’s education nor do they have any information on the educational trajectory of the school.
Betsy DeVos, the sitting Secretary of Education, did not like that standard. Even with her own children, she felt like she could become more involved, and they were in the charter school system. While working with her children and visiting their school, she met many different types of parents from many different social classes. She knew what they had to sacrifice to enroll their children in the schools and what it must be like for other parents that were not able to do that for their own children. Sometimes parents are even oblivious that they might have a say in how their children are educated. Therefore, this is why it is so important for individuals like Betsy DeVos to advocate for these changes, it promotes a new way of life that people never thought was possible.
DeVos sat down to answer some questions about her early career and the current progress of her time as Secretary of Education with PhilanthropyRoundtable.org. She explains that not only has she seen significant growth in the charter school system, but more parents have also seen the value in homeschooling their children. This is definitely a way that parents can gain power over their children’s education by directly providing it to them themselves. Virtual schools have also hit their stride in recent years, with increasingly more students taking to the Internet to receive a valuable education. This option not only lets parents-controlled education process, that allow students to engage in more self-directed learning which will prepare them for their vocational future as well. In a way, it puts education into the hands of the parents but also into the hands of the students themselves.
According to the exuberant Secretary of Education, the schools in the United States are in need of a significant overhaul. They have not felt the stress and challenges associated with competing for funding and students. Students have simply been funneling into their halls for many years because of something that has been established, but with people like DeVos in office, other alternatives are being given more merit. Students are finding more confidence in other types of education and the parents are feeling the power they haven’t felt in many years when it comes to their children’s future.
