Eduhonesty: Feeling bullied today. The kids are fine. Admin can be scary, though, and I especially dislike this fact when they are trying to be scary. If I tried “Do it or else!” in the classroom, I’d deserve to be in trouble. Why can administrators tell me to pull up my test scores or else without consequences? Especially when any explanation whatsoever for those lower scores gets labeled as excuses.
Sigh. Need to be quiet. No one is listening anyway.
