So, near as I can tell, my school is going to lose a Science teacher next year while still replacing our soon-to-retire Instructional Coach.
No snark or satire needed here. That is just plain messed up.
It’s wrong-headed for so many reasons. If I start listing those reasons, nothing good can come from the exercise. All that will happen is that I’ll have a list of about 47 bullets, many won’t make any sense to a non-teacher type humanoid because they will involve massive numbers of acronyms, and I’ll just get more mad about it.
So consider it a combined courtesy and anger management strategy when I simply say: That is just plain messed up.
P.S.: Tonight, my school is holding its “Pride Night”. A little tough to have much in the way of pride with decisions like this going on.
P.P.S.: And because this might be my only chance, ever, to even tangentially connect what is probably my favorite press conference OF ALL TIME to a post/subject, here’s Allen Iverson. Just replace the word “practice” with “Instructional Coach”.
