I was reading some posts in the Job Seeking area last night and stumbled across a post which made me think of the nepotism abounding in my district. This person was shocked when she found out 12 people had been hired and the district had only posted 2 positions on their web site. This is obviously, blatant nepotism... has to be. My district has been sued twice in the past four years because of teachers being passed over for principal positions. They were qualified but were over looked because they were black and female, white males were hired. They won their law suit, were awarded a cash settlement, and the next principal positions were given to them. I know when I tried to get in my present district I had to wait for the superintendent to hire his preacher's wife, then a school board member's wife was hired... sister-in-laws of board members... Most recently the district hired (never advertised the position) for the coveted librarian's job. They "gave" it to the high school librarian's daughter who was a one year teacher in another district with no library science hours at all. It really burns me up because we have some teachers on our campus who would have loved to have had the job. And... we let them get away with it. Do you know of any nepotism going on in your district?
