Betsy DeVos Flames Out In 60 Minutes Interview, Can’t Answer Basic Questions About Public Schools [VIDEO]

CNN reports:

Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos stumbled her way through a tense portion of her interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday night, struggling to answer some basic questions about schools in her home state of Michigan and admitting that she does not “intentionally” visit underperforming schools.

“60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl asked DeVos if in Michigan, students who can’t afford to leave public schools are thriving, as the secretary cites. “Have the public schools in Michigan gotten better?” Stahl asked.

“I don’t know. Overall, I — I can’t say overall that they have all gotten better,” DeVos said, noting that “there are certainly lots of pockets where the students are doing well.” Stahl suggested she should visit those schools to understand what they’re doing. DeVos responded, “Maybe I should.”
