Betsy Devos began her 30-plus years of business and political success as a student at Calvin College. In the early 1980s, she married billionaire Dick Devos with who she co-founded the WindQuest Group in 1989. The Windquest Group was and is a company that invests heavily in the technology, manufacturing, and clean energy industries. The couple has been incredibly successful leaders of the company, leading it to be one of the leading companies in the world.Devos also an active philanthropist, doing most of this extensive work with her husband through the Dick and Betsy Devos Family Foundation. But most of her philanthropic work has been political with specifically education in mind.

This aspect of her life has been huge since the 70s and has culminated in her recent appointment as the U.S. Secretary of Education. In a recent interview with Philanthropy Roundtable she fleshed out some of her educational ideals and passions. 30 years of work on the subject have not dimmed her passions and ideals; she remains as committed to developing her educational projects as ever. She is convinced that she has enabled vast progress and is equally convinced that much progress will still be made.She is most optimistic about the future her greatest educational passion, School Choice, especially now that she is serving as Secretary of Education directly under Trump, the top guy himself. But that is only one of her many, many concerns in the role.

Of the many other things she will have to do, probably the biggest and most important will be directly overseeing the $1.3 trillion debt program. Even now she is planning and instigating her strategy, a big part of which will involve giving year-round Pell Grants to low-income students. This phase of the plan began deployment on July 1.This system makes everything a lot simpler. In the former system, there were a variety of plans. So many that it often became confusing. Yes, this will make it less complicated which will be a very good thing. But the biggest benefit is that it will save a whole lot of money. Estimates say that the five-year saving could be around $130 million.
