CAN IT GET WORSE?
My school known as Wilcox Central High School has dropped another bomb on the students. Let me go into detail on why I say this.
Since my freshman year, I've had new principals. The one I had in my freshman year was booted out towards the middle of it for sexual harassment of a female student. He was principal of my school for over 20 years, and he is just now getting caught? Can that happen? I don't think he really did it, but it's not what I think that matters. So that May he was officially fired from his position. Our two assistant principles at that time were also moved. Well, one was moved to an elementary school to be principal, and the other was fired.
My sophomore year was a little bit better. Our new principal was hired, and even though he was strict, he was better than the old one. His only fault was that he was let go from another school system because of money embezzlement. I believe in second chances, but not when it comes to my education. This summer he was fired from my school for, guess what? That's right! Embezzlement! He stole somewhere along the lines of $1,200 from the school budget. Even I saw that coming.
Now for my Junior year, I have a new principal, again. This time it's some guy who was fired from both a Junior High School in Monroeville, AL and a school system in Mississippi for sexual harassment charges. Why would they hire someone like that you ask? Well he failed to mention that when asked to talk about his past positions in the educational system. You would think that our Board of Education would do a background check right? Well that's not what happened. The Superintendent recommended this fellow just like she recommend principal number two. I guess she didn't know about his history either. I wonder how long it'll be before this one is fired.
If I get a new principal next year when I'm a Senior, I will try my hardest to move with my sister to Baltimore. I don't blame the principals for doing what they did. They were given the chance and they used it to the best of their abilities. I place fault on the Superintendent. She recommend them, but no one is pointing that out. With all of this in mind, can it get worse? Many of the good teachers, the ones that actually cared about educating students are either gone, or making plans to leave. Can it get worse?
