"Your children did not either, correct?"
DEVOS: I don't know.
"Why is it that choice is up in MI and the secretary is dissatisfied with how kids in MI are doing", said Grover Whitehurst, who led the federal Institute of Education Science at the U.S. Department of Education during the Bush administration and now serves as a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. The Trump administration's recent efforts to trim spending are notable because budget increases are so familiar. What she also did, though, was pull those kids out of their public school and send them to private ones instead. Despite confessions she couldn't "ever imagine" her first grade teacher, Mrs. Zorhoff, having a gun, she maintained her position that arming teachers "should be an option", claiming that "we have invested billions and billions and billions of dollars from the federal level, and we have seen zero results", yet wilting under further questioning from Stahl on that front.
"They want gun control", Stahl responded.
Although DeVos appeared to favor charter schools during her "60 Minutes" interview, she also acknowledged their limitations.
Nina Rees, CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, declared previous year that the debate over charter schools was "over" and that charter schools were unequivocally better than their traditional counterparts.
Proponents tout charter schools as offering parents more choice over where their children can receive an education, as well as their alleged ability to improve student performance. DeVos could have challenged that premise by pointing out that each state has different laws, education models and policymakers with discrete priorities, which makes it unfair to compare one state directly against another.
DeVos: I hesitate to talk about all schools in general because schools are made up of individual students attending them.
"Betsy DeVos is clearly unqualified to be in charge of such an important responsibility-the future of our kids".
Lesley Stahl: The public schools here are doing worse than they did.

University Hospitals increases security at fertility clinic after embryo freezer malfunctions
For some patients it could mean procedure fees would be waived for future treatment. "We are so very sorry this happened". The only way to check if an egg or embryo is viable is to thaw it, which is only done when it is to be used imminently.
"Overall, ... I can't say overall that they have all gotten better", DeVos said.
DEVOS: I have not - I have not - I have not intentionally visited schools that are underperforming.
The wife of Amway executive Dick DeVos and wealthy in her own right, Betsy DeVos is a former two-time state Republican Party chairwoman in MI.
"Everything I heard from [DeVos] in our conversation suggested that this is just the latest effort to delay and shift the conversation away from the gun safety reforms that people across the country are demanding", Murray said. Her "I don't know" answer drew harsh criticism, particularly from MI press.
Throughout Sunday, March 11, and Monday, March 12, DeVos took to Twitter to address some of the harshest takes on her 60 Minutes interview.
"There is a huge amount of (school) choice that's being exercised in Detroit", she continues. "There is no doubt about it", she continued, admitting that she does not "intentionally (visit) schools that are underperforming".
"I️ had never watched "60 Minutes" before, but I can tell you this, I will never watch it again".
