Hey everyone, So I was non-renewed at my previous position. Long story but it was not based on performance. It was a political move - 3 new teachers were non-renewed in my school, basically used as pawns to show a P and other admin's power. Our evaluations were all totally fine. Blah blah blah...it stunk and there was nothing I could have done about it. I have a finalist interview on Monday and I'm wondering how to bring this up / disclose it? I do not want this school to hear from my old P that I was non-renewed - I would rather it come from me. My school used the typical "not a right fit" line when non-renewing me. Should I just use that as an explanation? I'm worried this will hurt my chances of getting this job. They asked me in my interview if I was still with this district and if I was going back. I answered that I was not with the district and I felt that it wasn't a right fit. Advice please?
