Knowing the importance of free lunch programs, many Twitter users criticized DeVos' statement as "ignorant" and chastised her for using a reality faced by so many children in poverty as a punchline for a joke.
"This issue was a very huge example of the Obama administration's overreach to suggest a one-size-fits-all approach ... to issues that are best dealt with and solved from a personal level, from a local level", DeVos said during an interview with CNN conservative commentator Kayleigh McEnany at CPAC.
But DeVos didn't actually say the teachers were waiting to be told what to do; rather, she said, "They're waiting to be told what they have to do, and that's not going to bring success to an individual child".

Sam Malekan, a third-year history student and co-director of student services for the Financial Support Commission at UCLA, said he is concerned about having a Secretary of Education who has never applied for financial support herself. The source said DeVos first communicated this to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and then was summoned to the White House on Tuesday for a meeting with Sessions and Trump, where she was told to sign on to the move.
DeVos said she does see the federal government having an important role "are really around the needs of special needs students" and civil rights issues.
Her comments came amid reports that the Trump administration is considering a federal tax credit scholarship program of up to $20 billion that would help working-class families send their kids to private schools.
That was meant to draw laughs from the conservative activists, but low-income schools, known as Title I schools, provide free and reduced lunches and breakfasts to low socioeconomic students.

"Together we can make American education great again", she exclaimed at one point during her speech.
"My job isn't to win a popularity contest with the media or the education establishment here in Washington", DeVos said.
