Betsy Devos is the current secretary of education of the United States of America. Devos is married to Dick Devos of the billionaire Amway family. According to Mother Jones: Her and her family have donated heavily to right wing causes...(she) was seen as a controversial choice because of the family’s history of heavy spending on right-wing causes—at least $200 million since the 1970s to think tanks, media outlets, political committees, and advocacy groups. And then there’s the DeVoses’ long support of vouchers for private, religious schools; conservative Christian groups like the Foundation for Traditional Values, which has pushed to soften the separation of church and state; and organizations like Michigan’s Mackinac Center for Public Policy, which has championed the privatization of the education system
Devos since taking office has been extremely polemic in her positions held. Her right wing privatization advocacy has shown that her main objective is to create a modern Christian theocracy in the USA while debilitating public education as much as possible across the country.
Some of her most controversial positions (there are too many) include, most recently, the erroneous proclamation that schools can and should report “illegal” immigrant children to ICE (this is unconstitutional and illegal) and also avoiding to answer whether states should allow schools to be able to discriminate against students based on physical handicaps, gender, or race.
Devos, much less known, is the sister of Erik Prince, who is the founder of the now defunct mercenary private contractor; Blackwater. Blackwater has been found guilty of committing many war crimes against Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan during “the war on terror”. Prince stated that Blackwater was fighting a holy war and it’s been exposed by his former close affiliates that he considered himself a crusader fighting against evil Muslims.
