My elementary school principal was the shjt. But yeah the others were just assholes in the bureaucracy.
If students respected the custodians and janitors, they wouldn’t trash bathrooms because TikTok told them to.
I was recently (pre-Covid) a custodian at a high school, I spent my mornings doing landscaping and my afternoons on lunch duty. Of the 1800 kids at that school, about 7 of them had the slightest amount of respect
@Steve Lichman, I work maintenance and operations for a school. Kids today don’t know what respect even is lol. Their parents were too pathetic to teach them.
Sounds right though. Principles are over paid
@Fiesta Anaconda , my problem lies with schooling principles of conformity, uniformity, ageism and many more, whereby adults autocratically order people around labelled as 'children' with more personal motive than actual educational purpose.
Principles have a big impact on how much unnecessary ideaology is mixed in with a school's education, all the while convincing themselves they have a meaningful job and life.
Janitors have no such qualms, no such power, and they do not wake up excited to clean the bathrooms of some 1000 kids - they're in this bjtch with us, and they also want less shjt involved.
Gonna disagree with this one... We had 2 elderly men as custodians and people treated them terrible. People would intentionally make huge messes and would tell them to clean it up. It was sad but it was the kids that are likely not doing well in life. Everyone else ignored them. I tried to be nice to them but they were so jaded that they weren't especially nice either.
