Betsy DeVos on the Future of the U.S. Education System

Joining the podcast this week is the Secretary of Education under the Trump Administration, Betsy DeVos. We discuss the future of America’s education system, including the evolution of school choice during COVID, the battle for and against Critical Race Theory, and the ongoing changes to Title IX.


Betsy DeVos is a leader, an innovator, a disruptor, and a champion for freedom. She is the nation’s leading advocate for education freedom for students of all ages, having served as the 11th Secretary of Education from 2017-2021. Her advocacy has led to the creation of new educational choices for K-12 students in more than 25 states and the District of Columbia and has expanded post-high school education options for students and adult learners alike. DeVos is also an accomplished business leader. She served as Chairman of The Windquest Group, a privately held investment and management firm based in Michigan. She is the former chair of the American Federation for Children, The Philanthropy Roundtable, and the Michigan Republican Party, and has served on a number of other national boards, including the Kennedy Center and the American Enterprise Institute.
