Walking through a fourth-grade library literary class at Yeshiva Darchei Torah, DeVos looked over the children's work and gushed: "Very cool... good job. wow. nice. that's great. lovely".

After visiting the Manhattan HS for Girls on Tuesday, DeVos toured the all-boys Yeshiva Darchei Torah in Far Rockaway on Wednesday.

"Secretary DeVos is welcome to visit N.Y.C. public schools and see the phenomenal work we're doing in the nation's largest school district", she continued.

Devos, an advocate for private and charter schools, is not expected to visit any of the city's public schools.

"The objective of today's visit was to come to see Orthodox education here in the city".
