I've been browsing 'Workplace dilemmas' for the last ten minutes and during that time I've read three comments where one person says to another (whom I assume they don't know apart from via this forum) something along the lines of "I have no doubt you're an excellent teacher, they're just out to get you." The person they're referring to is usually subject to a support programme/capability procedure. My question is, why would you assume that s/he is an excellent teacher who invariably does the best for the students under their care? Surely it's the case that many teachers are like that, but there are inevitably some who are lazy/useless/jaded/a complete git? The majority of us will present ourselves in the best possible light in the public forum, but the desire to be supportive seems to result in a very one-sided viewpoint. (There are notable exceptions to my argument - @grumpydogwoman @nomad and @Rott Weiler always seem to give very balance advice.) Any thoughts?
