You may have been watching the news lately. Don’t be surprised at what’s going on within Capitol Hill. The world is rapidly changing, and we’re actually honored to have women like Betsy DeVos leading a path for many to follow. This specific path is one within education, and it’s being managed on a national level by none other than Betsy DeVos.

It was only months ago when the President of the United States himself honored the world by appointing Betsy DeVos as the U.S. Secretary of Education. And what this means for the country are amazing changes that will improve what we can do to the education of our children. It’s Betsy who’s been involved with education for so long now.

Well, tremendous is not even close to how the Senate Education Committee felt about this beloved leader in the United States. But, you can’t expect every innovation to be implemented with ease. When your ideas and beliefs challenge those around you, you will have to know that it means to stand your ground.

Standing firm is exactly what Betsy DeVos did, and with the power of a mighty fist.

When question after question were asked and for every topic regarding education, Betsy stood firm. And she needed to seeing as she wasn’t “given the light of day.” But don’t get us wrong by saying this. The fact that Betsy faced opposition in recent weeks is clear proof.

When progress moves with the norm, no one is shocked or amazed.

When challenges to the status quo come, many run and panic with unjustifiable fear. So we thank Betsy for her input and the impact its making. We also leave her in our prayers. Part of Betsy’s main goal is to reform public schools into private facilities. But what this means may be hard to grasp. Read more articles at MLive.com about Betsy.

George Soros Supports People in the United States

The point of the Democratic Party is to make sure that the people are taken care of and that they have all of the rights that they need to be able to succeed.

With the recent election, George Soros is beginning to see that there are many problems with the Republican party and the people who are in charge of it. Despite the fact that many people did not have support for the candidate, he was still able to win. There were not a lot of people who would be able to get what they wanted out of the election and the majority of those were the ones who believed that they should have a lot of rights as citizens of the United States.

George Soros is a very wealthy many but he does not squander it in the way that some people do. Instead, he has chosen to use it to make the country better so that people will be able to have all of the rights that they deserve.

Dick DeVos Makes Known What He’s Given In Lifetime To Non-Profits

Dick DeVos has taken a great deal of pride in how he’s given his money to charities in Grand Rapids, but he’s never been one to be ostentatious about it. He’s the Chairman of The Windquest Group which has supported some of his philanthropies and has been a catalyst for many businesses in Michigan, and he’s been on the board of many think tanks that the Dick & Betsy DeVos Foundation also supports. His wife Betsy was chosen by President Donald Trump to be Secretary of Education thanks to the reform work that she and Dick have done, and in light of this nomination the DeVos’s finally disclosed that they have given around $139 million in their lifetime to charity, and much of this excludes political candidates they’ve donated to.

 

Dick is the son of Richard DeVos Sr., the co-founder of Amway Corporation. Amway Corporation is a multilevel marketing company that has helped many independent business owners establish their own sales businesses through reselling various consumer products. Dick developed quite a business acumen growing up, and after completing his degree at Northwood University he went to work under his father. He became a company vice president in 1984 and helped launch offices overseas. He briefly left the company in 1990 and founded The Windquest Group around that same time. He served in that position until 2002 when he left to focus on running The Windquest Group.

 

The DeVos’s have given to several private schools including Potter’s House and Grand Rapids Christian School, and they’ve also established scholarship funds through the Dick & Betsy DeVos Foundation. They did try to start a program to establish school voucher and tax credit credits if passed in legislation, but it came up short of the needed votes. They did successfully start a charter school coalition at the Great Lakes Project, and later started a charter school of their own called the West Michigan Aviation Academy. Dick and Betsy also have given to children’s hospitals, and Dick was given the Spectrum Health Foundation’s Award of Giving in 2006.

 

Dick and Betsy have also run for office several times including Betsy’s time as the Michigan Republican Party chairperson and Dick’s bid for the governorship in the 2006 election. He came up short in that race to incumbent Jennifer Granholm but continued to fight at the ground level for conservative changes. In 2012 his efforts paid off with the passing of a right-to-work law. Dick has shared some insights to his principles and beliefs through his book Rediscovering American Values.
