Memo to the Education Secretary:  Before you sit down with 60 Minutes and Leslie Stahl, perhaps study up on education, especially in your home state, or you’ll look like this:

When Stahl asked her about being the “most hated” member of Donald Trump’s cabinet, she said that she was “misunderstood.”  According to The Washington Post:

“These are just some of the things that DeVos said — or couldn’t answer — during the interview:

  • She couldn’t say whether the number of false accusations of sexual assault on school campuses is lower than the number of actual rapes or assaults.
  • Arming teachers “should be an option” for states and communities, she said, even though she couldn’t “ever imagine” her first-grade teacher, Mrs. Zorhoff, having a gun.
  • “We have invested billions and billions and billions of dollars from the federal level, and we have seen zero results,” she said — a statement Stahl challenged.
  • “I hesitate to talk about all schools in general because schools are made up of individual students attending them.”
  • In reference to the #MeToo movement, she said she experienced some moments decades ago that “today would just be viewed as unacceptable.”

Perhaps this is why Devos rarely gives interviews.
