Small town teachers....how do you get past the insulation? I can’t talk to anyone in my district about issues I’m having with admin because it’s a small town & they cover each other and gaslight you. The school district only cares about their PR and has vague policies that keep us from saying against them, yet we can’t say anything TO them either. My union rep is trying to help but she also said that it’s all too common for small towns. They always win & you just have to suck it up or get fired.

Has anyone called your bluff on a competitor interview? FWIW, I did pretty well on the penultimate round for a FAANG company and am expecting the final round to be scheduled soon. However, I have a final round with another company (comparable pay) scheduled for tomorrow. Can I tell them that I have this final round FAANG interview scheduled for next week in the hopes they pay me more (even though it hasn't been scheduled yet and may never be scheduled)
