From what I read the country has an epidemic that is growing at an enormously fast pace! It seems administration all around the country thinks they can go ahead and behave as if nobody else matters in a school district! Their hypocrisy is an embarrassment and their self-management BS needs to stop! The unions aren't doing anything about it mine believe my administration before me even! We're greater in number and we need to stop the bullying and harassment directed at teachers and students!

I'd like to get behind your cause, having been on the business end of bad administrators at various times in my career. That being said, I have worked with a number of very good administrators, helpful and genuinely desiring the best for kids. I am quite willing to be critical of administration when deserved, but I do think that each case should be examined individually.

I haven’t had a good administrator in my also 20 years in my current district. I’ve had good ones at other schools and during summer school so I know they exist. I know many admin get angry when I say this but - in my experience - most admin today are bad admin because they were bad teachers. I’m not sure if they are jealous or and angry at us because of that. They don’t get that if they support us, we’d run through a wall for them. Instead they don’t support us and then wonder why we don’t support them.

In my state, the number of administrators has increased, while abusive treatment of teachers by admin. has also increased. The number of teachers have decreased. Teachers don't grow on trees, but many admin. sure as h#*! act like it!

Why have unions become so powerless in recent years? A decade ago, the collective bargaining units would get wage increases that matched or exceeded inflationary growth. Now we are lucky to see any positive integer offered.

Seriously, those were her words in a loud, berating, angry tone. Our admin has asked that we not report these. We are to talk to the teacher. She has yelled at me and other adults. Admin has to know she treats the kids this way too. One teacher has to work with her door closed to not hear the yelling all day.

Our district is so lax on the students this year. With tech issues and distance learning days, we’ve gone from accommodating to enabling real quick. No penalties for late work, taking excuses for attendance, lower academic and behavioral standards... We were beginning to make so much progress on transforming our school culture, but this year is erasing that and then some. Is anyone else concerned about how to raise the expectations and students’ self-discipline back to pre-enabling levels?
