IDEAL WORLD

| 2 Comments

Sam of Clean Up On Aisle Life is almost beside herself with joy and disbelief about the school where she's landed:

There is a procedure for everything, and it is spelled out for you in efficiently run meetings, then followed up with real action. Whenever I speak with a teacher, they say, "This school is so great because of the administration." Whenever I speak with an administrator, they say, "This school is so great because of the teachers." I feel as if I have entered an education fantasy land of mutual respect, genuine concern for student goals that leads to amazing student production, and general happiness with the school environment.

She adds that this educational dreamscape is, in fact, a New York City public school, located in a poor neighborhood, and focused on special ed for kids with emotional disorders.

Is this place accepting applications?

On the other hand, I work in a district where absolutely nothing has a procedure, no meetings are run professionally or effeciently, and absolutely no action is ever taken until it has reached a crisis stage. There is no respect for teachers from administrators and then they wonder why we don't respect them. The parents are help in contempt by the administration. The students are ill served, especially the gifted and the special needs students, but because we are doing okay on statewide tests, why change anything?
