JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says American education declined in quality when mothers started working outside the home.

Republican Bryant made his initial remarks Tuesday in Washington during an education forum hosted by The Washington Post, and he elaborated on them later in an interview with The Associated Press

The newspaper reports (http://wapo.st/134DYMc ) that Bryant and two other governors were asked how America became “so mediocre” in education results.

Bryant said: “Both parents started working, and the mom is in the work place.”

In a phone interview with AP, Bryant said having both parents working outside the home puts pressure on families and that affects education.

Bryant’s wife, Deborah, has worked outside the home for more than 38 years, including while their two children were growing up.
