He assistant principal militarizes the students & spends his days sitting in classes not allowing teachers to take charge on their own. While taking so much energy to police the halls, he is either ignoring everything going on under his nose or is too ignorant to realize it. For him to put forth so much energy in policing the school, you'd think he would care more about how students are treating one another than being the first to pass out one-way tickets (which is a rather useless punishment) to OSCAR. Maybe try praising the kids on what seems simple good behaviors instead of automatically setting them up to fail. Kids will be what you make them out to be, man. Figured you knew this with all this training.You have kids getting slapped but not really if you didn''t see it. You've got kids being bullied but not really if you saw them talking weeks before. I don't know if you need to be replaced or if you need a lesson taught to you by a dominatrix. Or maybe just a sympathetic clue.
