The phrase voice of a generation elicits thoughts about probably a rock star or a singer. However, in this sense, the notion that Betsy Devos is the voice of a generation is literal. Betsy DeVos is truly speaking on the behalf of the future generation in the present.So let’s all listen up and hear what she has to say.
Her Words and Mission
As adults, parents, and teachers it is our job to raise the next generation into being not as good as we are but to be better than who we are. Our educational system has failed our children and in the end, our failed children will lead to a failed nation.The effects of having poor education in our schools will lead to our great nation falling. However, with the new secretary of education Betsy DeVos being placed into office, the educational system may see some great changes in the future.Her mission and her voice are to improve the overall quality of our educational system. She does this by one giving more options to the parents and the teachers. This is an amazing step in the right direction toward uplifting our nation.Childen truly are the future and if we aren’t probably educating the children then the future looks very bleak. Having better communication between the teachers and the parents is a great improvement already in the educational system.The adage, that it takes a village to raise a child” is all too real. Betsy Devos message of bringing teachers, children, and parents together will resurrect our once great innovative educational system.
What is wrong with the educational system?
When it comes to our educational system, our teachers have long let go of the idea of bringing innovation into the classrooms and entrepreneurship into the classrooms. Our nation was founded on entrepreneurs and on innovation. This is what has made our nation so unique amongst the other countries.Her affiliation with the American Federation for Children has truly solidified her determination and her desire to give all children the best education possible. In one of her speeches a few weeks ago, she expressed very passionately but also very elegantly that our teachers need to also focus on our special needs children. However, not in the sense of pitying them but helping them to desire to learn. This is a huge milestone in our educational system because it throws away the notion of letting people just slip by in our educational system.
Our great society of innovators and entrepreneurs seem to have found hope in Betsy DeVos. The voice of the future has found their leader and hopefully, the educational system will resurrect and go back to its former glory.
