Pressuring Teachers to Leave: Honest Talk about How Principals Use Harassing Supervision
Stoelinga, Sara Ray
Phi Delta Kappan, v92 n4 p57-61 Dec 2010-Jan 2011
Many principals use harassing supervision to encourage low-performing teachers to leave. Principals are driven to this tactic because teacher evaluation systems don't systematically identify low-performing teachers, principals don't understand the teacher removal process, principal training programs don't build principal expertise in hiring and teacher professional development, and high turnover rates mean that principals often are new at their job.
