Completely agree with you==true, schools only wanting to pay 5 years experience. I have seen this on multiple sights and complaints from teachers and coaches.
That is on the schools, not politics. It is an added insult from school corporations to even tell teachers and coaches that's the deal. So it is a double whammy. Where do school corporations even think that this is ok to degrade experienced teachers/coaches by only offering 5 years. Shame on them!! The other problem is that HC's are posting jobs and wanting experienced coaches and the school corporation won't even interview the candidates or work with the HC's unless the candidates have under five years experience or be willing to take a 20,000 pay cut. Again, shame on school corperations
