Mississippi Governor Blames Education Problems On Women Going To Work
Phil Bryant, the Governor of Mississippi, blames the decline in educational quality on working mothers:
Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant (R) said Tuesday that the country’s problems with education began when mothers “got in the workplace” in large numbers.
During a Washington Post Live event on children’s literacy, Bryant was asked why the country’s state of education had become so “mediocre.”
“I think both parents started working,” Bryant said. “The mom got in the work place.”
The Republican immediately sought to clarify his remarks, according to the Post, noting that “both parents are so pressured” in modern households. Bryant also pointed to a lack of investment in schools as a reason why other countries have surpassed the United States in educational outcomes.
Yea, this is gonna help win the women’s vote, isn’t it?
