Devos and Pitbull in Florida

Betsy Devos has once more found herself in critic’s crosshairs for her visit to Miami, this time accompanied by the rapper Pitbull. Pitbull is a controversial figure. Many of his songs are laden with profanity and some of his opponents have called his lyrics misogynistic. However, Pitbull also started a charter school and makes numerous charitable donations to the less fortunate.



Critics threw Devos’ Christianity at her and questioned why she would spend time with a rapper like Pitbull, but apparently forgot the parable of Jesus and the tax collector. Her critics would rather Devos’ behave as they do—as judgemental critics that want the power of right and wrong—rather than as someone willing to do what it takes to expand school choice.



The expansion of school choice is Devos’ main platform, and her visit to Florida included visits to many different school institutions. These schools included a private Christian academy, a public elementary school, and two higher-education institutes.



Devos’ visited the CARE Elementary School, previously called the Christian Academy for Reaching Excellence. The school is part of the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship program, which provides tax breaks for individuals and businesses that donate money for private scholarships. This allows students from low-income families to attend private schools without the financial burden.




She also visited SLAM, a charter school opened by Pitbull. This school is part of a for-profit educational network called Academica, a network that has recently come under fire for ethics complaints due to its ties to state legislators. In the past decade, schools in the Academica network have received a larger share of state capital funding. However, with celebrity backing, these schools can receive private donations without the criticism of arm-chair politicians.



Regardless of viewer’s thoughts on Pitbill, Betsy Devos has made it clear she will not discriminate between school types or locations in her push to further educational opportunities in America. She has visited Florida several times, and is a longtime ally of former Florida governer Jeb Bush. Her family home is also located in the state. However, despite her strong ties to Florida, Devos has made strides in bettering education across the country.



Florida acts only as a starting point. After all, it’s easier to fix problems in your own backyard first before moving on to the rest of the neighborhood. It will be interesting to see what changes Devos can make to the education system.

Pay on Performance: Jeremy Goldstein and Compensation Law

Back in the day, getting a bonus based on the performance of the company came standard. If certain goals were met, then you would get a higher bonus because you helped the company get to that point. If they were not met, then you would get less of a bonus. The structure seemed to work, and there were often better results being reported and higher employee satisfaction with pay plans like this. However, in recent decades many companies are starting to wonder if these plans really do help to increase the bottom line or if they hurt the company over the long term.


The main argument for these plans comes from executives and employees that want to feel like they are a part of the company. They get a sense of ownership when they know their pay is tied directly to the performance of the company. They would argue that they are going to work harder to make things better for the company overall. Executives will say that they will start new projects to increase production and come out with new and innovative plans for gaining customers if they knew that they could get a hefty bonus because of it.


Opponents of performance-based pay will say that, even though the company’s performance in the short-term is improved, the long-term goals are being sacrificed by the people in charge just to get a few extra bucks at the end of the fiscal year. They are worried that executives will put off needed capital expenditures and that employees will just work to get production out the door while letting the company fall into disrepair just so they get a larger bonus check at the end of the day.


Jeremy L. Goldstein, of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, is all too familiar with this problem. His firm specializes in corporate law and compensation law, and he has seen both sides of this argument play out several times over. He has suggested that companies pay on performance, but make sure that the metrics also include some longer-term parameters rather than just annual or quarterly earnings. This will give the incentive to keep things up for a long time. Also, he thinks that executives should be held more accountable for their actions. Compensation committees should scrutinize any decisions that the executives make that will also increase their bonus to determine if what they have done is really in the best interest of the company. Overall, Jeremy Goldstein is working hard to bring cases like this to a close and find a solution that works for everyone. Learn more:
