Principal Intimidates The Young
I just heard that the principal of my school called some of the young teachers and asked them to come in a day earlier than everyone else, to work for no pay or compensation to work with him on plans for staff development. These young teachers, fearful of getting on his bad side and perhaps losing their jobs agreed. He should be ashamed of himself for putting young teachers in a position like this. Although no one threatened or forced them to show up, they really felt as if they had no choice but to do as asked. It is scary that the Bloomberg administration is giving these demagogues more power every year.
