I've had this happen several times.

Five years ago I interviewed with a rural school district that was looking to hire two Reading Specialists; one at their elementary building and the other at their middle school. On the interview team were the three principals and the superintendent. During the interview the superintendent said "Why should I hire you? I can hire three (new with BA degrees) teachers for two (experienced and masters) of you." He went on to say "I fill my positions and get parents off my back about class sizes." I didn't get either job but those who did were fresh out of school.

Another district, the one I live in, won't hire anyone at more than "Bachelor's, first step." In other words the least amount they can pay you. It doesn't matter if you have advanced degrees, additional credits, or years of experience. If you want to work in this district it's "Bachelor's, first step." I interviewed here for a Reading Specialist position at their primary school. They have no problem hiring three new (additional) central office administrators at princely sums after telling the support union they were trying to bankrupt the district during recent contract negotiations.
