As most teachers with any experience know, the climate of any particular building is set by the principal. When she or he is intelligent, friendly, respectful, has integrity and even is demanding, most often the professional and non-professional staff will follow with honest and diligent performance.

We know that in every school there are staff who could do more or perhaps are trying to get by or take advantage of "the system". The administration in those settings has the tools to address those situations if they choose to.

However, if the principal is demanding but is lacking intelligence, friendliness, respect or integrity, she or he will have a staff who does the job but is not happy with the environment. In those situations, the principal may become a tyrant who get results by pressure. Teachers, wary about their jobs, don't speak out. If they do, they become targets for removal from the school by discipline or intimidation. We call that "teacher abuse."

If you are in a school with a tyrannical principal, you know one or more stories of staff who have voluntarily transferred, been forced out of the building or quit the job to escape this abuse.

We are working with the National Association for the Prevention of Teacher Abuse (a non-profit organization) and its website to form a local chapter for mutual support and to speak out about teacher abuse.

If you would like to know more, attend a planning meeting at the Joseph E. Coleman, Northwest Regional Library on Sunday, March 30, 2008, 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room. The library is located at the corner of Greene Street and W. Chelten Avenue in central Germantown. There is plenty of available parking. The meeting is open to interested teachers, secretaries, custodians, parents and students.The general public is invited as well. Please join us! We will be teleconferencing with Joseph & Jo Blase who wrote BREAKING THE SILENCE..CHECK THIS BOOK OUT. iT IS SCARY!
