Ex-college lecturer hammered for belittling Jill Biden’s title of ‘Dr.’

By Around the Web

(THE COLLEGE FIX) — A former lecturer at Northwestern University recently was trashed on social media and elsewhere for an article he wrote making fun of Jill Biden’s title of “Dr.”

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Joseph Epstein recommends that the soon-to-be First Lady drop her oft-used title because “a wise man once said that no one should call himself ‘Dr.’ unless he has delivered a child.”

Epstein notes Biden got an EdD from the University of Delaware in 2007, and the title of her dissertation was “Student Retention at the Community College Level: Meeting Students’ Needs.”
