Betsy DeVos Reforming Education

Educational equality isn’t a privilege. It is a human right. Unfortunately, due to region and financial status, every child doesn’t have easy access to education as others do. We live in a society that is working to change this. Education should be offered to every child, regardless of their location or family finances. Gratefully, Betsy DeVos is dedicated to reforming education to advance opportunities to all children.

Where It All Started

It is no surprise that Betsy DeVos’ strong passion for education has continued consistently throughout her career. Her desire began during childhood. Betsy DeVos’ mother was a public-school teacher. Being the daughter of a teacher ignited a high level of importance on education in her life. In addition, Betsy DeVos personal experience with her children’s schooling allowed her to acknowledge the lack of education for other kids. Her and her husband, understood that while they could afford the best schools for their children, not every family was able to do the same.

Supporting Families

Martin Luther King once said, “The tragedy is the appalling silence and indifference of good people.” Neither Betsy nor her husband Dick DeVos, have fallen tragedy to turning a blind eye. Both have been partners in making education their family philanthropy. They first started by visiting the Potter’s House Christian School, which gives education to low income families. Here, they learned that all parents want the same thing for their children: to have the best learning in a safe environment. At this point, they started financially supporting individual students to help with their education. Imagine how many more children across the U.S. needed assistance as well. Betsy became a part of a foundation which gave low income families scholarships. However, there were still children slipping through the cracks. Betsy wanted to fill that gap. Therefore, she served on the board of two national charities: Children First America and American Education Reform. Through both organizations, Betsy’s was able to use vouchers and tax credit to help families. Betsy and Dick both participated in passing Michigan’s first charter bill in 1993.

Education in the Future

Betsy efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. Through consistency and passion, she’s has reformed educational equality. Being chairman of the American Federation for Children, has afforded states like Florida, Louisiana, and Indiana have all benefited from the tax-credit scholarship program. Now almost million students have more educational choices!

Sir Francis Bacon’s quote, “Knowledge in itself is power” has never carried more truth. Thus, for the past thirty years Betsy Devos has since been committed to giving children and their parents power by creating more educational opportunities through assistance. Through Betsy’s reform, regardless of a student’s location, circumstances, or financial ranking, they will have educational freedom!

Julie Zuckerberg, the lead recruiter for Deutsche Bank, has a reputation as being adept at acquiring leads globally and across age ranges.

Her work history is impressive, and she has steadily been gaining recognition for her abilities as a talent recruiter.

 

Zuckerberg has made a name for herself as a recruiter because of her ability to relate to people all over the world and across age ranges. A recent article on “www.themichaelreport.com” described Julie as being skilled with the Millennials who are coming into the workforce currently, and represent a unique challenge for many recruiters because they are bitter due to college debt and have lost faith in corporations. Julie has the ability to bridge cultural divides and make people feel excited about employment opportunities. The company that she works for now, Deutsche Bank has a reputation as an employer that keeps it’s employees best interest at heart, and this helps Zuckerberg perform her job well.

One way that Julie Zuckerberg has found to keep the employees that she helps the bank hire motivated and engaged in their tasks is to draw from the bank’s employee pool first when hiring for a new role. Employees in entry level positions are motivated by this because it provides them with ample opportunity for moving around in the company. They could try a position that is not necessarily different, but does offer variety, or they could go for a promotion. This strategy is just one of the techniques that Zuckerberg has learned over the years.
