The issue of national education in the United States is nuanced and just a bit complicated, especially because the youth and future of society pretty much depends on its success. For this reason, the U.S. secretary of education must have vision and some kind of real world experience on the issue. Betsy Devos just happens to fit the bill perfectly with her ability to asses large scale problems and address them, with efficiency in mind.
Due to her personal exposure to the scenes behind the public education system, Devos feels rather strongly about the state of affairs in this area of American life.

As do millions of US citizens, from coast to coast. Read more articles at MLive.com about Betsy.
The real Betsy Devos would like to see far more bipartisanship and cooperation in action when it comes to how solutions are drafted, regarding public education. In her plan, the answer really comes from educational choices that are provided to households on the gubernatorial level.
