They say that children are the future but when they say that are they considering how they are being treated in the present? The reason why this is such an important question is because the state of the American education system is atrocious. Current Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is willing to admit that it is in extreme need of an overhaul in a previous interview she participated in with PhilanthropyRoundtable. The problem with the American school system is that it seems to be in decline when compared to other developed countries. Children all over the world are outperforming American schoolchildren. Betsy DeVos believes that one of the reasons this is possible is because children are not being exposed to the education standards that they need. Instead, children are being put into small education factories within their district that turn out students with just enough information pumped into them to pass standardized tests. It is a very disheartening endeavor to say the least.
Betsy DeVos is a mother herself and the education process is very near and dear to her. The standard of education has been declining for some time. For too long administrators have been trying to find a way to streamline the process. The problem with trying to streamline the education process is that children are being treated as products instead of human beings. This means that many of the “products” fall through the cracks. Children can feel left out from the lessons or behind. Children that do not feel challenged or feel as if they are too far behind will cease effort. This is one of the biggest reasons why children are not receiving the same scores as European counterparts. Betsy DeVos wants parents to have a bigger say in how children are educated. One of the ways that parents can do that is by enrolling their children in alternative education programs such as private schools, charter schools, and virtual homeschooling.
All these options allow parents to take control of the situation. When enrolling their child in a private school they can look at the school’s mission statement to get it good idea of how they will educate their child. Betsy DeVos is even working on ways to help fund these alternative education programs so that parents of all backgrounds can roll their children in them. A virtual school environment is also growing in popularity in recent years. Many colleges of taking on the significant challenge of online and distance learning with success. Betsy DeVos wants parents to view the successes an opportunity to enroll their own children in distance learning education as an alternative method. When parents take control over the education process children will immediately benefit from that. It shows them that they have a choice in how the education process goes. Instead of coming home every single day defeated children can feel thrilled knowing that they are learning something. Betsy DeVos simply wants parents understand that there is more available to them and they should be aware of the concept of “school choice”.

Tempus Inc. was co-founded by tech entrepreneur Eric Lefkofsky after someone in his family was diagnosed with cancer. While helping them through the treatment process he was befuddled by just how hamstrung physicians are when it comes to the technology they use to treat this deadly disease. Having been in the technology sector for over 25 years he thought that there simply had to be a better way and so after partnering with one of his long-time business partners Tempus was born. Tempus is based in Chicago, Illinois, like all of the companies Eric Lefkosky has been a part of founding.
They take a data-driven approach using the genomic sequencing data from prior cancer patients to create a database that physicians can use to develop personalized treatment plans for their patients with cancer. The goal is that by analyzing people’s genetic information and comparing it against the genetic info from prior patient’s it will be easier for physicians to identify what treatment options will most likely help their patients. This company has had two funding rounds this year. Their Series D round took place in March and they raised $80 million.
The Series E round was in August and another $110 million was raised. The British venture capitalist firm Baillee Gifford took the lead in this latest round. Three other companies that have invested in Tempus before also participated which were T. Rowe Price, New Enterprise Associates, and Revolution Growth. The money they raised in this latest round will be used to expand what Tempus offers into international markets. They will also be gathering more genetic sequencing data and incorporating it into their database. With around 500 employees and counting they recently relocated their headquarters to the Groupon Building in downtown Chicago in order to have room to expand their operations.
