Working environment

  • A culture of bullying has crept into many of the schools in the CBE in the past several years. Administrators are hired with very little if any regard to their human resource management skills. Too many are hired simply based on who they know or how far up the ladder they have ascended. Once hired, in many cases, they are not monitored and the system turns a blind eye to the ways in which they operate their schools. Too many high quality teachers are falling victim to the bullying and excessive demands such principals operate their schools with. This toxicity then pervades a school causing an overall atmosphere of stress and anxiety which works all the way down to the student level. Year after year, more and more demands are placed on teachers to make up for shortfalls in budgeting and new whims thrust upon schools by the System and overzealous principals. When concerns are raised by teachers about this, the response is that nothing much can be done about it. As a result, too many teachers face declining health and are taking long leaves of absence to recover from personal fallout and damage. The CBE quite clearly does not value its employee base nearly as it should to ensure an excellent employer status.
