Brickbats to Clay County School Superintendent Charlie Van Zant Jr. and the Clay County School Board for their continuing squabbles. The latest chapter of this ongoing sniping resulted in Van Zant filing a lawsuit against the School Board over its decision to set job requirements for a district position and not accept his recommendations. School officials say his actions could cost the school system about $100,000. It would seem that Van Zant and the School Board ought to be able to come up with a solution without spending dollars that would better be spent educating students. Is this any way for public officials to act?
