DeVos' 60 Minutes Interview Is Not Going Over Well

DeVos' 60 Minutes Interview Is Not Going Over Well

Reading standards in MI schools have declined rapidly in the past three years, according to a report published last week by Education Trust-Midwest, a non-partisan research and advocacy organization.

Devos is such a believer in charter schools that she has refused to look back to see the damage left behind in the wake of her own success. "Some of the students sent out angry tweets". DeVos didn't seem to know, and Stahl was quite sure they're doing worse. "How about you actually do your job?"

DeVos: I hesitate to talk about all schools in general because schools are made up of individual students attending them. There may be other benefits for students taking advantage of school of choice policies, such as perceived safety or social issues, but improved learning isn't necessarily one of them. She asked - and Trump agreed - to head a commission on school safety that would assemble best practices and make recommendations to local systems.

Furious about her treatment on the CBS news-magazine program on Sunday night, Betsy DeVos spoke to reporters on Monday, and called "60 Minutes" a "total waste of a half hour". "She has proposed massive cuts in public education funding and wants to shift billions to alternative players like private, parochial and charter schools".

Ranked Virginia downs North Carolina in ACC Tournament Championship, 71-63
Losing by five on a neutral court to a team that will end up being a 2-seed or better isn't anything to be concerned about. The Tar Heels will now open up the first two rounds of the tournament close to home, playing in Charlotte, North Carolina.

"I have not - I have not -I have not intentionally visited schools that are underperforming", DeVos answered.

The billionaire rarely gives interviews and is the only member of the Trump cabinet to be protected by a squad of U.S. marshals, because she attracts controversy and protests and has received death threats. "It's better than it was". Overall, I. I can't say overall that they have all gotten better. I think everyone in this segment should have done a little more homework.

But the case is strong that she is right about the need for reform. Charter schools are privately run but publicly funded.

The Washington Post gathered data from public school districts with school choice and charter schools and how that impacted students as a whole.

Iowa employment rate holds 2.9 percent
December jobs were revised down to show a slight drop (700 jobs) rather than a slight gain as initially reported (1,500 jobs). Coffee County's rate of 4.1 percent now is considerably less than the 5.9 percent rate tallied at the same point past year .

On the most recent state standardized test, the M-STEP, only 22 percent of seventh-graders were deemed proficient in science, 21 percent of fifth-graders were proficient in social studies, and 15 percent of fourth-graders were proficient in science.

Stahl pressed the point again.

Donald Trump's education secretary, Betsy DeVos, stumbled through a TV interview on Sunday, admitting she did not know why many United States schools were underperforming and agreeing that maybe she should visit some in order to find out.
