A question presented to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos by a News 4 reporter has garnered national attention.

Wednesday, DeVos visited Oakland High School, where she complimented the school's commitment to addressing its students' needs.

On the tour, News 4's Kevin Trager asked DeVos whether President Trump was a good role model for schoolchildren after he referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as "Pocahontas" in front of Native American Code Talkers at the White House.

“I think the president continues to lead in an important direction in our country,” DeVos said. “I think that we can all do well to reflect on the things that we say before we say them.”

The Washington Post picked up the comment, asking, "Did Education Secretary Betsy DeVos just chide President Trump about his disparaging reference?"
