Mark Kirk, Teacher? Not So Much
Ellen’s Illinois Tenth Congressional District Blog
Kirk has always used his teaching “creds” to make a splash in the Tenth District. He talked about being a teacher in both of his debates with Seals to prove he was a “pro-teacher republican”.
From the NYT
A review of public comments that Mr. Kirk has made over the last decade shows that while he may refer to himself as a former teacher, he does not talk about the brevity of his experience: a year in London at a private school and part-time in a nursery school as part of a work-study program while he was a student at Cornell University.
From Ellen’s blog:
This comment Kirk made in 2006 to push one of his education = school security systems makes me scratch my head:
“I also remember those who bore scrutiny as people who might bring a gun to class.”
Using your college teaching assignment in ENGLAND as experience as a teacher in the US - what the hell?
Fact checkers are these Pol’s biggest fear. I’m amazed that there’s probably a ton of BS that was never checked.
