I teach in a high school in which the curriculum administrator has all the power. Ever since it stopped being a department decision, I've been assigned first year algebra and WASL (our state 10th grade assessment) prep classes (for kids who haven't mastered middle school math yet.) I'd like to say it's because I'm good with them, but given the other teaching assignments, it's clear that it's a favoritism thing. Three of us have professionally expressed our dissatisfaction with the schedule in the past and been told if we don't like the way things are run, we should quit. This is not unique to our department. When a 2nd year teacher was just handed an AP class that I've been counting on for 3 years (waiting until enough students enrolled), I have to wonder whether it's time to move on. I just wonder whether this is common in other schools as well. I really like where I work, and I don't want to start over somewhere else, farther from home just because one person is a ... well, insert the unfavorable noun of your choice. Several people have also talked with the principal, but he kindly suggests we bring the issue up with the Curriculum Administrator. Any ideas?
