Not Getting Along?
Adams, Caralee
Instructor, v116 n7 p47-50 May-Jun 2007
Crafting a positive school work environment takes time and will that many educators often lack. Yet some experts say that how the principal, teachers, and staff get along is paramount to parental involvement and to cutting-edge instruction. Unfortunately, according to this author, the workplace culture in many schools is undeniably dysfunctional. Energy is used to gossip, compete, and divide instead of to communicate, collaborate, and unite. In this article, the author offers some signs that indicate when a school is in need of a change of climate, and some suggestions on what everyone can do to turn it around.
