Betsy DeVos and the Importance of a Quality Education

Issues such as poverty have continued to grow within the United States despite the many initiatives to fight unemployment as well as healthcare issues. As a result of this growing issue, the private sector as reached out to help and to attempt to spur economic growth through investments. Of the many companies and of the many families that have reached out to communities across the United States, the DeVos family is one of the most generous and most caring families in the United States that looks to not only spur economic growth, but also looks to spread the well being of individuals across the country. The DeVos family is known for the family owned business known as Amway Corporation, a multi-billion dollar company that sells household products all over the world that are both of the highest quality as well as inexpensive for the average consumer no matter what country they come from.
