The interview came as the White House announced that DeVos would lead a commission to examine ways of protecting schools and students from gun violence in the wake of the February 14 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.
And she struggled to clarify the administration's position on how to improve school safety in the wake of the mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school last month.
Throughout Sunday, March 11, and Monday, March 12, DeVos took to Twitter to address some of the harshest takes on her 60 Minutes interview. But it's worth looking past the obvious gaffes to see how DeVos's fundamental ideas about education run contrary to her department's mission - and how her home state of MI is a flawless example of this.
In 2016, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey led an effort to add $3.5 billion from state reserves to K-12 schools over 10 years, in addition to regular budget appropriations.
"So, now that I have the opportunity to speak unedited, I'm not afraid to call out folks who defend stagnation for what it really is: failure", she said during a speech at the National Parent Teachers association conference in Virginia. Overall, I - I can't say overall that they have all gotten better.
Thankfully, DeVos is doing all she can to combat this noxious scourge of people going to school. She couldn't say, for example, why schools in MI, her home state, have largely gotten worse since the widespread introduction of the school choice policies she lobbied for. They've made it clear that they care more about a system, one that was created in the 1800s, than they care about individual students.
This is at the core of DeVos' argument in favor of charter schools - more options will force public schools into competition and they'll have to improve.
How are MI schools doing? "There is no doubt about it". "The public schools here are doing worse than they did". She expected Jed to do his homework once in school, so she did her homework first on the schools near their SC home.
"I give a lot of credit to the students for raising their voices", DeVos told Stahl.
"The point is that schools should have this tool if they choose to use the tool". After her full year of on-the-job learning, though, DeVos' appearance Sunday on "60 Minutes" showed no diminution in her ineptitude.
Again, it's unclear why DeVos thought this should have been highlighted. Her "I don't know" answer drew harsh criticism, particularly from MI press. People could quite reasonably conclude that education isn't all it's cracked up to be, and they wouldn't go to all the trouble of attending school.
