Dan McCready is a Democrat running for Congress in North Carolina.
He recently accused his Republican opponent of lacking faith in America’s public schools, but he probably should have kept his mouth shut.
Because it turns out that McCready sends his kids to an expensive private school.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic Congressional Candidate Says Opponent Lacks Faith In Public Schools, But Sends His Own Kids To Private School
Democratic congressional candidate Dan McCready of North Carolina sends his children to an $18,000 a year private school, but that didn’t stop him from accusing his Republican opponent twice during an event Sunday of having no faith in public schools.
McCready, who is running against Republican state Sen. Dan Bishop in the Sept. 10 special election for North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, said during a candidate forum the Fayetteville NAACP hosted that Bishop’s policies were to blame for a small-town North Carolina substitute teacher he spoke with who said her pay has dropped from $14 an hour to $10 an hour, despite being on the job for 14 years.
“This is what these politicians like state Sen. Bishop do,” McCready said at the event, according to video of the event the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained. “They don’t believe in public schools. They do anything they can to conduct a war on schools.”…
Despite McCready’s accusations that his political opponents lack faith in public schools, he has enrolled some of his own four children, ages 2 to 8, in a Charlotte-based private school with a tuition rate close to $18,000 per student.
McCready is being called out for his hypocrisy.
Greedy Dan McCready on education: Public schools are awesome … as long as my kids don’t have to go to one!
