On 60 minutes Betsy DeVos decided that the Trump administration is looking into an Obama-era policy that may have allowed the Parkland shooter
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos told CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday Night that the Obama-era school discipline reform policy is now under review.
“We are studying that rule. We need to ensure that all students have an opportunity to learn in a safe and nurturing environment. And all students means all students,” DeVos told host Lesley Stahl.
Stahl reacted, “Yeah but let’s say there’s a disruption in the classroom and a bunch of whites kids are disruptive and they get punished, you know, go see the principal, but the black kids are, you know, they call in the cops. I mean, that’s the issue: who and how the kids who disrupt are being punished.”
DeVos responded, “Arguably, all of these issues or all of this issue comes down to individual kids.”
DeVos replied, “It does come down to individual kids. And–often comes down to–I am committed to making sure that students have the opportunity to learn in an environment that is conducive to their learning.”
Stahl asked, “Do you see this disproportion in discipline for the same infraction as institutional racism?”
“We’re studying it carefully. And are committed to making sure students have the opportunity to learn in safe and nurturing environments,” said DeVos.
The Mainstream Media has basically had a blackout on this program and has instead attacked striclty guns.
