Emeryville School Chief Resigns Over Faked Resume

Apparently, nothing says “You’re fired” better than a resume filled with lies. Just hours after the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Emery District Superintendent Stephen Wesley’s Ph.D. and Master’s degrees are phony, the school board voted to accept his resignation. According to the Oakland Tribune, board President Joshua Simon made the announcement “after praising the otherwise smooth start of school on the district’s first day.” You ever have one of those days when reality outpaces any punchline you can come up with?
