There's job politics in education too. Sometimes it's not what you know, it's who you know. Still, I sympathize with that situation.

He does have a doctorate, but has been a high school social studies teacher and coach. He is in the same building as the admin building and I am in a separate building across town. The district has no females or minorities in admin positions.

yep!

Update: He declined the job. They offered it to a principal from another district who was a SpEd paraprofessional for a year before becoming a teacher

Hello everyone, I'm early in my career 26yo and have been working as ML engineer for a year but mostly did analytics, BI and developed some algos for internal clients.
I have the opportunity to switch to a product owner role which could lead into a product management role further down the line.I'm afraid about leaving the technical side this early and I'm not sure which career path I'd like to follow.
Being this new in the job market, should I stay technical? Or break into product owner early?
