Where you had a huge impact and influence over the direction of the school system here. "Your children did not either, correct?" "I have not intentionally visited schools that are underperforming".
The soon-to-be-confirmed secretary of education politely confirmed at the time that neither she nor or her children had much experience with the public education system. She wasn't satisfied with Jed's assigned school, and her research led her to East Point Academy.
"They want gun control", Stahl responded.
Her "60 Minutes" appearance included a demonstration of her disinterest in civil rights issues and documented issues in schools.
Air Canada Passengers Experiencing Extreme Delays Following System Meltdown
Toronto Pearson International Airport has also confirmed that the Air Canada system issue is affecting flight schedules. The carrier said it was "experiencing some flight delays, but we're getting everyone on their way".
DeVos said the United States has comparatively stagnated with test scores, pivoting again to school choice as the solution. "We need all parents to have those choices".
Betsy DeVos gives every indication that she is, to borrow President Trump's phrase, a "low-IQ individual". DeVos often seemed at a loss for words as Stahl probed numerous most controversial points in her brief career as secretary: her faux pas about historically black colleges; the rollback of transgender student protections and Title IX sexual assault regulations on campuses; efforts to reduce racial disparities in school discipline. "She has spent most of her professional life fighting for loosening the federal government's grip on public education while promoting parochial and charter schools in MI - many of which her family has bankrolled".
Lesley Stahl: No, but your argument that if you take funds away that the schools will get better, is not working in MI where you had a huge impact and influence over the direction of the school system here. 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 freakish and controversial opinion given the numerous studies that have found that about 20% of female college students are victims of sexual assault.
Asked if the two were the same, DeVos remarked, "I don't know".
In a "60 Minutes" interview, DeVos said that she had not visited any underperforming schools during her tenure as secretary.
Driver was killed when bus crashed into ravine
Baldwin County commissioner Christ Elliott said first responders "are having to rappel down" to access the crash site. Rescuers used every piece of equipment on every truck to reach them, Mack said: "This is what we call an all-out".
This is the case in DeVos' home state of MI, where the public school system has been ravaged by school choice.
"Arguably, all of these issues or all of this issue comes down to individual kids", Devos said, to which Stahl replied, "Well, no ... it's not".
Trump is asking for better management between mental health care, school officials and law enforcement. It's worth noting that during DeVos's confirmation hearing before the Senate education committee in January 2017, she said, "I believe there is a lot that has gone right in Detroit and MI with regard to charter schools." Sen.
The Detroit Free Press responded to DeVos's interview by reemphasizing its work studying education trends in the state, including coverage of a recent report raising concerns about a statewide drop in proficiency amongst third graders.
But the day after the piece aired, DeVos took to Twitter to criticize the news show, saying important facts pertaining to Michigan's academic performance weren't included and information her department shared with the network was left out. As education secretary, she has pushed for deep cuts in the federal education budget while urging large expenditures on school choice programs. But it is unclear why DeVos thought they should have been used by Stahl. She had less success in pushing vouchers - which use public money for private and religious school tuition - in the state.
Sir Ken Dodd: Tickling sticks and tears for Doddy
Tributes are pouring in including from fellow Liverpudlian Claire Sweeney, who described Dodd as a "legend and an inspiration". Sir Ken's publicist Robert Holmes added: "With Ken gone, the lights have been turned out in the world of variety".
