A former teacher recently paid a visit to the old school. The teacher came home depressed. No one smiled. Morale was at an all time low.
The Quality Review will be there soon and the Principal is waving the whip around. Many have felt the sting of the lash and those that haven't imagine its sting everytime it comes down on the back of a colleague. They now understand what it is like to be a circus animal, jumping at the crack of that awful thing.
The Principal thinks he is saving the school. The DOE doesn't want the school saved. It will all be for naught.
The toxic atmosphere combined with the melancholy mood of everyone will be affecting the students soon.
That is for sure...too bad the teachers cant strike in NYS...but with the Taylor Law, this prohibits..
(well sort of...Al Shanker violated the Taylor Law back in the 60's when the teachers striked).
