"....don't touch that dial... the hits just keep on coming."   Although this one's with a bit of a twist:   https://www.capebretonpost.com/news/provincial/kings-county-student-says-she-was-suspended-for-publicizing-another-students-shirt-with-rape-message-573873/

You'd think school administrators would be able to see this coming and act more delicately (or, sometimes, let it pass).

Yeah, but those kids were ugly and their mothers did dress them funny.

Based on MY observations and interpretation of competency, I think the distribution is relatively flat.... 1/3 incompetent boobs; 1/3 "okay," and 1/3 pretty good.    IF the sample was large enough would the distribution be a bell curve?

I just think there would be more awareness of what happens these days when you deal with this type of situation. It doesn't take a genius to figure potential volatility. It's not like the "old days" when authoritarian rules were more common/normal. There's been enough publicity about similar events.

My experience varies. I wouldn't call any of my principals incompetent, but there were a couple that made one occasionally scratch one's head - what you might call a wtf moment. Vice principals were another matter. Most were fine, but a couple were - "What are they doing here? What is their purpose?" And one reason I didn't go for administration is the gossip factor - staffroom chat. No matter how hard you try, someone always has something negative to say behind your back. As one principal said. "Jesus Christ could walk through those doors (pointing down the hall) and into there (pointing to his office), and they'd still b**ch!" I transferred schools to work for that guy a second time.

I agree, and I'm very happy that I'm in one of those thirds.

One teacher called to me across the foyer, "I hear you're the glue!" "Whaaat?!" "I hear you're the glue that holds your team together!" It's nice to be the victim of nice gossip.
