Bennett Steps Down

October 03, 2005

Here's another reminder why you should be careful what you say.

Bill Bennett, who made that outrageous statement about reducing crime and abortion, has stepped down as a member of the board of an education company. About K12: K12 and Education News Bennett said:

"Given the controversy surrounding the remarks I made on my radio show, I am stepping down from my positions at K12, so that neither the mission of the company, nor its children, are affected, distracted, or harmed in any way."

That was very wise of him. Unfortunately, he did show such wisdom by thinking before opening his mouth.
