Great Moments in School Administration

Son #1's business law teacher is out, for the next few weeks. He's serving as a substitute hall monitor, while the hall monitor is on maternity leave.

It occurred to both Son #1 and myself that it would make a lot more sense to hire a substitute hall monitor, and leave his business law teacher in place, than to hire a substitute teacher for business law, and pull one of my son's best teachers out of the classroom so he can watch people walk the halls.

Because, you know, substitute teachers can monitor the halls, even if they know nothing about business law.

That sounds a lot like my children's school district. Ugh.

maybe they'd let me monitor the halls without a teaching certificate - then again, maybe not...

Christine said...

Sue, I think they are all about the same.

No, Alf, they would have you teach Business Law.

Geee, this sounds familiar to me.... oh, duh, we're talking about the.same.brilliant.school.

Ugh....what a serious waste of time for DS and his teacher. I can think of a couple of admin people who could hop off their hiney and walk the hall....
