This is one of the problems with education. The coaches who taught only because they coached get promoted to administration because they are ineffective in the classroom.

Oh well, the politics of school systems.

I work for a school district in this county - Frontier Local to be specific - and I can tell you why coaches many times end up being an administrator. Most of the coaches teach physical education, health, history, civics, or some other social studies class. They typically pick these areas because they are more interested in coaching than teaching (In many cases it seems that is the primary reason they became teachers), and those fields tend to be less restrictive on their workload. Then they move into an administrator position so they don't have to teach at all.

Mary is onto something. If they don't want to learn, send them on there way and let them figure it out.

If these adminnistrators used that, they'd punt your child right out the door the first time they looked sideways.

Maybe we ought to do that. Give those who want to learn a better chance.

That's because in the past, to be hired one had to serve on extra curriculars either as a coach or an advisor.

We need to get back to that practice.
