The top candidates can relate to teachers, notes Education Week. Barack Obama’s half-sister has taught in public and private schools, including charters. Joe Biden’s wife has taught high school and community college classes. On the GOP side, John McCain’s wife was a special education teacher; Sarah Palin’s father was a science teacher, her mother was a school secretary and her brother is an elementary teacher.
I wonder why Cindy McCain doesn’t talk about her teaching experiences. Of course, she doesn’t talk much about her charity work either. Or her alien ancestry.
