Vitti’s made a staggering 120 principal moves in two and a half years

Vitti has never stayed anywhere very long and he loves Teach for America too which tells me he doesn’t see the value of continuity. Unfortunately (for us) he is in a profession where continuity is a premium. Also notice that Al Brennan of First Coast did not make the list. Here are this years changes.

  1. Fletcher Middle was in the bottom 16% in the employee survey and the insane woman there has been left in place. It's obvious that the DCSB isn't interested in retaining experienced teachers.

  2. Experienced teachers are expensive. Its the same at my school. They want new (untenured) teachers who are afraid to speak up and work for cheap. They don't care if they play on their phones all day while the students watch movies.

    1. The article in the TU said some were promoted to district positions, others that didn't move I imagine are out of a job.
