DeVos Fights Back After Critics Take Aim At '60 Minutes' Interview

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is fighting back after critics lambasted her performance on CBS' "60 Minutes."

On Twitter on Monday, DeVos said she shared data with "60 Minutes" showing students need more schooling options nationwide and the show chose to ignore it.

This is at the core of DeVos' argument in favor of charter schools — more options will force public schools into competition and they'll have to improve.

But when pressed about how that's worked out in her home state of Michigan, DeVos couldn't say public schools were doing any better — only that "pockets" had improved.
