Teachers union chief resigns over blog posts from years ago


Delaware Education Association President Mike Matthews has resigned from his post, Delaware. Public Media and other outlets reported.

Prior to becoming president of the Delaware Education Association, Matthews had a blog that was later taken down offering his views on various topics.

Matthews, a teacher, went on to head the powerful union.

However, technology, such as Wayback Machine (an archive of past web pages) allowed his posts to surface, with some considered to be sexist, racist and vulgar.

The association confirmed that it was investigating the situation on Wednesday and Matthews resigned that night.
