The school offers flexibility to students regarding what they would want to pursue that is in line with their career preference. Over the years, Betsy has enabled millions of children to enroll in schools of their choice.

Ford. She gained a lot of experience in resource and grassroots mobilization. Betsy has had a lot of contribution in the Republican Political Party. Betsy has steered political action committees, party programs and campaigns in the Republican Party. For half a decade, Betsy DeVos was part of the Republican National Committee.
Betsy’s resolve to be a member of the educational choice movement was informed by her personal experiences on what parents from the low-income bracket faced when seeking an education for their kids. She saw how the parents struggled to raise money for the tuition fee of their children. That is how her career in philanthropy was born. Betsy decided, to begin with offering support to a handful of kids. Today she helps a lot of children at the Potter’s House Christian School. Check this related article from nypost.com.
