Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant Says Working Moms To Blame For Downfall of Education (VIDEO)

Mississippi Governor

According to Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant (R) education started to go down hill once women started working to support their families.

During a Washington Post Live event Gov. Bryant was asked, “How did America get so mediocre?” regarding education. He responded, “I’m gonna get in trouble if I… you want me to tell the truth? … I think parents became, both parents started working, and the mom is in the workplace. It’s not a bad thing. I’m gonna get in trouble…I can just see the emails tomorrow.”

Bryant went on to back pedal saying it is the job of both parents to spend enough time with the children. However, his answer had nothing to do with our schools and educational system, and he instead threw a straw-man argument in against women in the workplace instead of broader applicable reasoning.
