The following article will be offering background information on Betsy Dee Devos, and it will recap the article and interview of her featured in Philanthropy, which is the serial magazine done four times a year, one every quarter, for the national magazine known as The Philanthropy Roundtable. Essentially, it is an important quarterly piece done with the same name as the publication it is contained in, and it featured her because in terms of national education, Betsy Devos, aside from President Trump has the final say so in the country right now over education decisions made by Secretary Devos that, at times, have look almost like unorthodox executive orders.
Politicizing the Tragedy
She has demonstrated some power and influence after getting picked on in the press and by the Parkland School parents and teachers who were anti-gun looking for a scapegoat and put no responsibility on the cowardly deputy law enforcement, but they blamed her, the NRA, and President Trump to cower behind their own fear of uncertainty. The talk about arming teachers with surplus guns was deemed a moral panic by the media. It is hard to say if this is a good decision or a bad on her part. One thing is for sure, school shooters do extensive amounts legwork, and Nicholas Cruz did his fair share of planning, and he planned so much that like many other school shooters, he caught the eye of law enforcement.
Betsy Devos Gaining Fame and Infamy
She got even more attention when it was suggested that maybe surplus guns should go to teachers to learn to defend themselves, their school and the lives of their students. Certain media organizations, lobbyists and parental groups zeroed in on Betsy Devos and the NRA again, yet she has yet to say such. Instead, the murderer, Nicholas Cruz, and certain members of the law enforcement were watching intently. It is probably a safe bet that since it was revealed how much planning goes into a school shooting that a gunman would prefer all his or her targets unarmed. Betsy Devos took a lot of heat for the incident, and so did the NRA and others for the acting and by the press when in a roundabout way was blamed for school violence made fun of treated unfairly and unwell in most corners of the press, but in what is commonly referred to as the mainstream media members of the media news networks seemed to be blaming everyone but Nicholas Cruz now. With the polarizing feelings concerning President Trump and a mild mannered Secretary Devos who had a quiet time in office since 2017, serving as the United States’ Secretary of Education, and since the position was created, Betsy Devos is the 11th person to have the honor and distinction of serving in the capacity as the top educator in the United States.
The information on her job title, description of her duties and any other information and descriptions regarding the immense duties of the Secretary of Education can be found in one article in this article of the Washington Post, and the other from an article in the Atlantic, which is also rich with her background and many current duties.
She has a had a lovely background and life, but the press has been particularly mean to the President and anyone he’s nominated or worked for. Betsy Devos may be a pretty woman full of charm, but also, she is an incredibly well connected and intelligent woman. She is the type of woman who will shove a surplus box of guns in front of a principal that has heard rumors of school shotings and be told to put down the first kid that brandishes a weapon. President Trump wants people willing to take those risks in his administration, and if she is not one of them, then she will not have a job much longer.
