Duval County’s teacher of the year, Apryl Shackelford, sells out teachers. She doesn’t represent me.
Having just finished throwing up in my mouth a little I read a passage for the Tampa Times just to make sure I wasn’t having some kind of weird teacher nightmare. Sadly I wasn’t.
Duval County’s teacher of the year in a Rick Scott campaign video said, “It means a lot to educators as a whole, because we know he listens to us,”
Did he listen to teachers when he stripped them of work protections?
Did he listen to teachers when he signed the odious teacher evaluation law, you know the one that often evaluated teachers on kids they never met.
Did he listen to teachers when he stole 3% of their salaries to cover budget shortfalls made by giving tax breaks to the rich?
Did he listen to teachers as he promoted his pro public education privatization agenda?
No, no, no and no. He threw us a few pennies, he p*ssed down our legs and Mrs. Shackleford thinks it is raining.
Apryl Shackelford, for shame.
Below is the video, watch it on an empty stomach.
