Not The Worst
Mr. P said "Suit is not the worst principal around." That was easy for him to say because he wasn't being targeted for career ruination. I'm not being targeted either but my eyes are open. I see what is happening to my colleagues. I see what he has done to others. He goes to arbitration at the DOE and lies. The arbitrators believe him because "He is a principal. He always speaks the truth." I know of a person languishing in a rubber room somewhere because he would not bow down the the Suit's demands and he refused to wear a tie. Suit made up things to destroy this guys reputation and credibility.
Anyone who deliberately sets out to destroy another person is wicked. Maybe there are others more wicked but evil is evil and whether he was not the worst around does not excuse or condone his behavior.
The new principal was an assistant principal in a high school in another borough. I don't know if he was a leadership academy person or not. I'm still reserving judgement on him. I'd like to think that there might be at least one decent administrator out there.
