It is hard to fathom what is going on in the mind of this Principal. I can't believe any Principal, entrusted with the education of thousands of students can make such a lame, self serving decision, but s/he did. I find it hard to believe s/he can justify this, even to her/himself.
The department I am referring to needs a new Assistant Principal. There are experienced, competent teachers in the school who hold the appropriate license and want the job. Instead, a person with zero days in the classroom, zero days as a supervisor and zero experience in this subject has been put in charge. This person is not familiar with rules and regulations and will be able to offer no guidance to the teachers being supervised. Yet, this person will be making all the decisions and will be deciding who is effective and who is not.
If this was the plot of a movie or a television show anyone with half a brain would say it was too stupid to be true. Sadly, it is true. A pompous ass of a Principal is making a mockery of the system because of a grudge or a favor s/he owes someone. It hurts to see so many people being put at risk because one uncaring, unknowing individual is in charge.
