Bernie’s Daughter Paid $500k To Teach Woodworking At Jane’s Bankrupt College

The world is growing increasingly wonky and is filling itself to the brim with things I don’t understand. For instance, Carina Driscoll – the daughter of the embattled Bernie and Jane Sanders – was hired to teach woodworking at Burlington College, which went bankrupt and closed last spring.

Burlington College prided itself on catering to “non-traditional students,” such as veterans and adults, and had a relatively small enrollment – about 200 students. It also offered degrees in unconventional fields such as woodworking, but when Jane Sanders arrived at the college in 2004, it didn’t offer any sort of program for woodworking. That’s when things get a little… corrupt.

I'm not buying this one without more information, not that I'm any fan of Bernie, 'cause he talks out of both sides of his mouth. The article says that the money, from about $100,000 to $185.000 was put into the program over five years, not that she was paid that. Start-up programs always need increased funds as they get rolling, have more students and expand the offering and need more space, more materials, more technology, more everything. That she was even hired might be suspect, but nepotism in colleges is rampant, both in public and private institutions. The University of Maryland system, for instance, is one of the worst, especially among minority hires, where do-nothing positions are actually created for spouses and "significant others" to lure educators to the system.
