Betsy DeVos Says Teachers Shouldn't Be Armed With Assault Weapons

Education Secretary DeVos gives cringeworthy interview to '60 Minutes'

How the White House Plans to 'Harden' US Schools

In other words, by visiting a struggling school, she would learn more about their struggles and challenges. She's reported from countries including India, Iraq, Egypt, Uganda, Nicaragua and Argentina.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos gave a stumbling, cringeworthy interview to CBS' "60 Minutes" where she said she didn't know if her policies had improved struggling public schools.

DeVos disclosed that she has not "intentionally" visited schools which are underperforming.

"Instead, President Donald Trump appointed Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to lead the Federal Commission on School Safety, who repeated the unsafe plan to arm teachers". Her confirmation hearings previous year were an embarrassment. Meanwhile, federal education programmes face steep cuts.

"School choice is the centerpiece of Ms. DeVos's education platform".

As this comment suggested, DeVos is, at best, oblivious about race.

Wilshere 'no closer' to signing Arsenal contract extension
I know I'm not technically gifted like they are, not as quick, but if you want to fight with me, I'm gonna beat you all day". Arsenal are a talented team that is playing poorly while Watford are not as talented but are playing well.

Updates: The federal education secretary is being criticized for her performance Sunday on "60 Minutes" and on Monday morning network news shows. While she has received very vocal criticism for her work, DeVos is succeeding with this agenda. "Have the public schools in MI gotten better?".

To understand how, we need to start with a letter that Sen.

The administration's proposals come after 17 people were shot and killed last month at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., a massacre that spurred officials in Washington to re-evaluate gun laws. The reforms are helping, but there's so much more to do.

Erin Tuttle, a parent activist from IN and a co-author of the book Deconstructing the Administrative State: The Fight for Liberty, notes to Breitbart News, "As Secretary of Education, it's DeVos's job to make the case to the American people on the need to reverse the Obama-era guidance on school discipline policies referenced by Stahl". DeVos isn't just considering ending the policy. But it is unclear why DeVos thought they should have been used by Stahl.

Among experts, this isn't really a subject for debate. "We owe that to our children", she wrote. The 13-minute segment sees correspondent Lesley Stahl going head to head with DeVos, poking holes in every canned answer DeVos presents as evidence of a job well done.

"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".

JP Nadda all set to be elected to Rajya Sabha
Santosh Kumar has been a close associate of the Chief Minister taking care of the latter's daily activities for the last 17 years. Union Minister likely to be declared elected unopposed as tenure of one of RS seat occupy by Mr Nadda is going to end on April 2.

She also avoided answering a question whether disproportionate discipline for the same infraction was a form institutional racism. "I'm committed to a process that's fair for everyone involved".

The comparison Stahl offered was a hypothetical, but it captured the heart of the issue.

DeVos: Michigan schools need to do better, there is no doubt about it.

After the school shooting in Florida, Devos is expanding her portfolio. She believes in choice, not because it's a market thing, but because teachers should have freedom.

Um, judging by this interview, DeVos is not misunderstood. The plan also encourages military veterans and retired cops to take up teaching.
