Can she be serious??

My "great leader" has asked us to stay after school for a few hours a week to do her job...

She has to have a count of everything in this building by the end of the year and she wants US to do it....

But isn't going to pay us for it until our last check in June. Um, NO!!!

Also, the head of our charter company came by our rooms at the end of the day when we were setting up to go home and accused us of not teaching. Um, are you drinking??

Finally, because we got an influx of new students in the second semester, we were asked why the test scores are down. Oh I don't know, maybe because OUR SCHOOL IS RAN SO POORLY THAT IT'S IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE STUDENTS TO GET ANYTHING DONE...

On the bright side, we got seven weeks left. YAY!!

OK, you're a charter school run by a company. Is this a for-profit venture? Here companies don't run charter schools. They must be sponsored by a qualified agency and be non-profit.

Do you mean like a room inventory? I'm thinking you mean much more than that because that is required every year at the schools around here.

LOL about the lack of learning AFTER school!

Sherry,

You are correct madam. A charter company not under written by a university. You hit it lady!! Love it...

Alygator,

She has to have a count of all the furniture books, ecetera. Now everyone will do their rooms but things beyond the room is what she's asking, all school equipment,etc...

She asked us to do it and clearly said I am NOT going to be here when you do it, What a morale booster!!

GT35 who is on a serious count down!!

Have you thought of moving across the state line? It seems like you're in a no-win situation. The public schools have problems and the charter schools have problems.

I am trying to hang in there just long enough for my Master's. Believe me I am out in two years. Give me a list of a few states I should consider, I'll look them up. Thanks

I'm in Indiana, so think about us. We don't pay what Michigan public school do, but you can make a living. As I said, our charters are closely regulated and all non-profit. They are designed with a specific innovation or instructional goal and are more like magnet schools.
