Taylor's no teacher


I recently received a Taylor Stevenson for senate District 10 flyer in which he states that he is a teacher in the Brainerd School District.

Upon checking Stevenson’s credentials on the Minnesota Department of Education website I found that he is teaching on a limited short call subtitute certificate.

That is a far cry from being a teacher as he claims!

On further checking his degree is in government, philosophy and German, not education at all.
