Scott Shines hypocrisy, the first amendment is for board members not for teachers.

From the, I can’t make this up file and ActionNews: 

A Duval County school
board member is pushing back against a call for his fellow elected officials to
stop criticizing each other in the media. 

Scott Shine said it’s
a violation of board members’ First Amendment rights and voters’ rights to know
what elected officials are saying to each other.

Then
this is what he quite gleefully told me the other day in a comment on the blog:
Just an fYI on the social media policy, this
was proposed as a policy addition from Dr. Vitti and was taken up by your
liberal friends on the board in the policy review subcommittee (against my
wishes)a month ago. They were unanimous in moving it to next years employee
professional standards. So, you only have a few months to add to your resume of
false and reckless statements. Sadly, I did not even get a chance to vote on
it. So, give your thanks to Hall, Wright and Couch for the
“anti-Guerrieri” code of conduct addition next fall. While I am
highly disappointed I did not get in on the action, and still want to bring it
forward as a policy addition as originally submitted by the superintendent, so
it can take affect in before the end of this school year.
So
the First Amendment is sacrosanct for board members but teachers should have their
rights stifled? He’s bragging there because he thinks my voice will be silenced.
Also
from ActionNews:
“They (board members) have a duty and
obligation to speak to the public and some of the things that need to be told
may not be comfortable things to talk about,” said Shine.

Um, yeah Scott I feel you on that one,
sometimes the public needs to be told uncomfortable things like how your hypocrisy
knows no bounds.

  1. I wondered about his interview when I saw it on television, after posting that comment on your blog about the school board was considering instituting a non-social media policy for employees.
