Apparently Representative Lyle Rowland (r) isn’t right wingnut enough for billionaires:

In addition to his legislative duties, Rep. Rowland is a beef cattle farmer. He also taught agriculture for 10 years at Forsyth High School before accepting the superintendent position at Taneyville in 1986. He retired in 2006 after 31 years in education.
Rep. Rowland has been the recipient of several awards including FFA Blue and Gold Award, Outstanding Rural Administrator (1997), Missouri K-8 School Superintendent of the Year (2005), and Outstanding Emeritus Educator (2010).
Rep. Rowland is a 1971 graduate of Forsyth High School. He earned his B.S. and M. Ed. in Ag Education from the University of Missouri in Columbia and his Specialist in Educational Administration from Missouri State University. Rep. Rowland also attended the College of the Ozarks. He is a member of the National Rifle Association, Missouri Farm Bureau and the Cedarcreek Community Church.
Hmm. Is this about teacher tenure?
