Paul Stam, North Carolina Republican, Says Schools Chief 'Should Stick To Her Own Knitting'
Think he would have said the same to a man?North Carolina House Majority Leader Paul “Skip” Stam had some choice words Monday for the state’s superintendent of public instruction –- words that he would most likely reconsider if the schools chief were a man.
Stam's comment came after the superintendent, June Atkinson, expressed her belief to reporters that private schools and public schools in the state should take the same standardized tests. He said she should focus on her mandate of helping public schools, according to North Carolina outlet The News & Observer.
“She should stick to her own knitting,” Stam said.
