Lack of trust

September 5, 2013 pm30 11:38 pm

Over 100 principals in New York City are not trusted by their staff, according to the Learning Environment Survey results for 2012-13, released earlier today.

I don’t place much stock in the surveys as a whole – but when half the staff says “I don’t trust you” something’s going on. We’ll look at other questions, and more details, later, and always with a grain of salt.

Which district has the least trustworthy principals?  None. Or all. They are scattered throughout the system. And at all levels. (Well, I’m listing none from Districts 16, 20, and 26, and only one each from 7, 18, 22, and 23). Three charter schools made the list.

At Foundations Academy, a high school in District 14 in Brooklyn not a single teacher trusts the principal (down from a miserable 50% last year).  At the Joseph A Loretan School (CS102) in District 12, not a single teacher trusts the principal. They are in the process of being phased out. Here’s those two, and the next hundred:

    I can’t not imagine being in one of the 16 schools with LESS trust in their principals.

    Who are the most trusted principals?

      There are many who came out at the top of the list… I’ll put together at least summary results from each of the boroughs over the next week or two, which will include both ends – top and bottom.

    Do you have any comments or thoughts on Ms. Damesek from Stuyvesant?
