Some of you I have had discussions with may remember my rantings on teacher favoritism in school districts--also some comments on principals/admins pulling strings for relatives causing some teachers to get unfair deals. I recently read a handbook that a friend showed me where her new school has started a policy against nepotism (favoritism to relatives). The policy is so strict that if you are an employee of the school and marry another employee of the school, one of you will have to give up his/her job and take a job elsewhere. The handbook states that if you take a job in the school without relaying any close relationship to another person in the employment of the school, you would get fired. It also states that in rare cases, the BOARD might rescind this rule. Does your school have any policies relating to these issues, and what do you think about them?
