The problem that Gottshalk and his ilk don’t understand is that most teachers love what they do because to them teaching is not a job its a calling. It’s not their “job” that they don’t like, but the
imbeciles way the people in charge are doing their jobs.
He makes it sound like all teachers care about is pay and if they wanted more all they would have to do is take a few classes to get it. That’s ridiculous and teachers know they aren’t going to be rich but it’s Clay county’s shame that many have to take a second job, haven’t had raises in years and allowed to be treated so shoddily by their administrator and ignorant citizens like Gottshalk.
This Van Zant sycophant is despicable but so is Van Zant himself. He could say to his supporter, disenfranchising tens of thousands of people many of who are parents is not right even if it would give me an advantage and that Gottshalk should drop out. Do you think he will? Of course not because all Van Zant is, is an opportunist looking for personal advancement.
Clay county you have something special there, don’t ruin it by continuing to allow Van Zant to drive the district into a ditch and then change the election rules so people like Gottshalk have no recourse but to slink back in their troll caves where they belong.
