David Chastain, a Cobb County Libertarian, is seeking the top education office in the state.
Cobb Libertarian Party Chairman David Chastain has announced his candidacy for Georgia State School Superintendent.
Asked why Superintendent Kathy Cox should be unseated this year, Chastain said Ms. Cox is not qualified for the position.
The popular phrase among “educrats” is “highly qualified,” he said.
“Few people understand exactly what it means and some excellent teachers have been told they are no longer qualified to teach, though they may have invested (more than) two decades of their career in education,” Chastain said. “Is Kathy Cox ‘highly qualified’ to be superintendent? I don’t think so.”
Chastain said because Ms. Cox is elected to her office and a member of the political party in power, she couldn’t afford to be objective.
“She has to keep running for re-election and make sure she supports the party agenda, which flows down from Washington, D.C., not from true academic research,” Chastain said.
