The tweet linked to a viral clip of DeVos' much-pilloried Sunday interview on "60 Minutes". The White House did not respond to a request for an official comment regarding DeVos' performances, and it wasn't immediately clear what President Donald Trump's reaction was. Let's go to the text!
"Well, there are certainly lots of pockets where the students are doing well", DeVos retorted.
STAHL: They want gun control.
Well, the students at Stoneman Douglas may want a "variety of things".
DeVos believes the key to improving public school districts is competition with private and charter schools, and so she supports redirecting taxpayer dollars away from districts for each child whose parents choose to pull them from the public system.
Stahl: Has that happened in MI? "We're in MI - this is your home state".
Although the new White House proposal that came out today pointedly does not include an idea pitched by President Trump to raise the minimum age to buy certain guns, DeVos said 'everything is on the table'. The 13-minute segment sees correspondent Lesley Stahl going head to head with DeVos, poking holes in every canned answer DeVos presents as evidence of a job well done. Betsy DeVos will be placed in charge of a commission to study the issue. DeVos said she does not know if there are as many incidents of sexual assault as there are incidents of false accusations on college campuses, a weird and controversial opinion given the numerous studies that have found that about 20% of female college students are victims of sexual assault. Said urgency has been disputed on two fronts: Stahl, who called this "talking. instead of acting" during the interview, and the students DeVos visited at Parkland last week who summed up her visit as "just for publicity".
If I was a boxing referee, I would have stopped this exchange about halfway through.
"Inept/offensive answers on struggling district schools, disproportionate discipline, guns, and school choice", Robin Lake, director of the non-partisan Center on Reinventing Public Education, tweeted. That is what's known in the business as cherry-picking.
Public schools in the states are struggling as well.
'Michigan schools need to do better. Maybe try to figure out what they're doing?' Stahl asked, continuing to press her.
"Wisconsin's classrooms have been ground zero under Scott Walker for implementing the disastrous policies of Betsy DeVos and the private-school political machine the last several decades and became a laboratory test for gutting public schools under Scott Walker's failed governorship", said Martha Laning, Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
Betsy DeVos:Maybe I should. Yes.
DEVOS: I have not, I have not, I have not intentionally visited schools that are underperforming.
- Philip Rucker (@PhilipRucker) March 12, 2018I have long maintained that @BetsyDeVosED is the most unsafe Cabinet secretary in the Trump administration, and tonight's @60Minutes interview further exposed her utter incompetence and bewildering policies. Or is she just stopping by the successes?
DEVOS:Maybe I should. Yes.
DEVOS: Sometimes it does.
"I'm not so sure exactly how that happened". Stahl:The public schools here are doing worse than they did.
Under DeVos, such actions have included repealing Obama-era recommendations that transgender students be able to use bathrooms that suit their gender identity and changing Title IX guidelines in higher education to allow colleges greater power to give the benefit of the doubt to those accused of sexual assault.
