I’m sorry, I can’t evaluate this

May 28, 2010 am31 7:37 am

Real dialogue from yesterday, approximately correct wording:

JD:  I’m sorry, I can’t evaluate this résumé. You’ll need to get X to look at it.

Principal:  Why?

JD: It’s TFA. I’m opposed to bringing in temporary teachers. I think it destabilizes the schools to have 2-year teachers. It’s a disservice to our colleagues. I’m out there publicly saying we shouldn’t be hiring TFA. I can’t fairly look at a TFA résumé.

Principal: Thank you for your honesty.

    Good for you. My principal, who was totally TFA gung-ho about five years ago, confessed to me that he’s “lost his taste” for them. He’s tired of the fact that they just come and go.
