Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has sparked a debate about working moms after making controversial comments during a Washington Post panel about childhood education.
Bryant quickly followed up, acknowledging that comment may get him “in trouble.” He went on to explain that both parents are under pressure in families today and face time constraints.
When the moderator asked Bryant if it’s the woman’s place to teach children to read, he said ““No, no. But I think there was that loving, nurturing opportunity that both parents had a little bit of time."
