Every parent, student and educator should read this. Valley View needs to model this and set the way instead of retroactively being the way. Even better would be if administrators would stop bullying their subordinates. Silencing our voices because one dislikes the criticism or as a cause of some personal issue the Administrator has with a staff member is counterproductive.

The effect of this bullying only reduces faculty to yes men via a Stalinist show trials. Instead of hearing what you need to here you get only a self-affirming what you want here.
Making teachers "reflect" so as to use the reflection as another way to attack them is more evidence of the show-trial mentality that is put on display for everyone to see.....

Dad always said, "Learning start at home". That's true and what that means for faculty/admin relations is that, if we want the students to stop bullying, we need to stop showing them how to bully when it's admin vs staff. All students can learn and learn this lesson on how to bully they do learn very well...The book called The No A&&hole Rule would help as well.

And we wonder why at student bullying when they see the adults doing it to other professional adults..!? Anyone, even the diehard supports of the admin at RHS recognize that their fellow colleagues are being beat-up emotionally almost on a daily basis. I heard Mrs. Steeves called Kinder out in some meeting by telling him something like, "How much more are you going to put them down".
Maybe negotiations between the Union and the Board might go better if you treated your employees like professionals instead of disposable diapers....Just a thought...
