On another message board there's a new teacher who mentioned that she has an interview next week. She asked for suggestions on how to answer the question, "Why do you want to work in our district?" I said that she should research online to find out their mission statement and the programs/methods they use, etc. I also mentioned looking at the test scores and if they're good saying something like, "I want to work in a district with a strong emphasis on [subject area]" but added that she shouldn't mention low test scores unless asked about them. Someone else responded saying that low test scores/not meeting AYP should be mentioned because it shows the administrator that you know how to read the data. What do you think? If a school didn't meet AYP, should you mention that in an interview?
