The controversial cabinet member from MI had trouble explaining poor school performance in her home state despite her own multi-million contributions to programs that support vouchers for public as well as private and religious schools.
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.
"Now, has that happened in MI?"
Even before becoming Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos has been one of America's most influential proponents of so-called "school choice".
In one much-criticized exchange, Ms. Stahl asked if she had visited any "really bad schools", and when Ms. DeVossaid no, the interviewer replied, "Maybe you should".
Asked if the two were the same, DeVos remarked, "I don't know".
DeVosresponded: "I hesitate to talk about all schools in general because schools are made up of individual students attending them".
"The whole state is not doing well", Stahl pushed.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos got a less than ringing endorsement from the White House on Monday after a pair of uncomfortable television interviews raised questions about her commitment to help underperforming schools and support for President Donald Trump's proposal to curb school violence. She toldStahl that there have been no positive results from federal investments in public school, but her claim is simply incorrect.
And it didn't end there.
Lesley Stahl:The public schools here are doing worse than they did.
