Re: “Teachers give a failing grade to working conditions

How absolutely astounding ... Superintendent Forcella and the Board engaged in the forced involuntary relocation of long serving career teachers, with deep ties to the school, the students and the community ... in an unfair retaliatory action accusing them of being responsible for a 'poisonous' atmosphere because they resisted efforts by the administration to engage in policies and actions that among other things papered-over or otherwise 'fudged' the achievement gap ... Forcella and the Board were informed point-blank by the teachers that were subject to the involuntary transfer, other teachers, and members of the community that this sort of imperious administrative action was itself responsible for the poisonous atmosphere and would only result in further diminishing the morale school-wide ... Ms. Thomson, a teacher with 29 years of service and seniority one year from retirement was moved to a push-cart position with no assigned class room and retired before finishing a semester ... Mr. Wartski was moved to another school where he was then tagged as some sort of trouble-maker and admonished repeatedly for various ridiculous 'infractions' in classic 'employment set up' fashion ... these teachers were at Chapel Hill High for decades ... other teachers there were and still are their long-standing colleagues and friends ... what happened to them was grossly unfair ... gee whiz, guess what happened ... morale went down, just as predicted

Forcella: "excellent feedback" ... as if he was interested in genuine feedback from these teachers ... I believe the expression is "what a tool."
