In a recent interview between Betsy DeVos and Philanthropy Roundtable, an interesting discussion was provided on the subject of education. The interview included numerous topics related to education and the educational system. The topics approached the subject of education from a broad perspective. Betsy DeVos conducted herself well during the interview. The questions that were asked by Philanthropy Roundtable were difficult to answer in a few short sentences. Therefore, Betsy DeVos was able to provide answers that offered a thoughtful yet firm view of education related to the particular questions.
Betsy DeVos cares for children and wants to help people in general. This combination has made her a proud advocate of children regarding the educational system. Mrs. DeVos points at various times during the interview that the educational system has areas that should be changed for the benefit of children. Mrs. DeVos understands how the system works and what problems results from the current state of the educational system. In the end, Betsy DeVos just wants what is best for the children and their parents regardless of money, wealth, or social status.
I feel that Betsy DeVos did a great job expression herself during the interview. From her answers and position on many of the questions, she was able to point out what she perceives as needs that should be addressed regarding the educational system.
Betsy DeVos is the wife of Dick DeVos. Mr. DeVos is currently the President of The Windquest Group. He has also served in key executive positions with the Orlando Magic and Amway.

With the same effort that he gives as an executive, Dick DeVos gives the same effort with the giving of his time and money to causes such as helping to revamp the downtown area in the city where he resides. In addition, Dick DeVos understands that leadership and teamwork are needed in charitable efforts in the same manner as professional efforts.
