Comments from 2/14/21 Poll - Aspiring to Administrative Promotion

Researchers have been studying career aspirations amongst educators. Would you like to do your supervisor's job at some point in the future?  (This is a repeat of a question asked on 12/14/14.  Results from both polls will be compared.)

Answer Respondent
I wanted to aspire to go beyond the principalship. However, at this point I wouldn't work in central office in my current district and with 5 years left it isn't worth the risk to move to a new district and then be without health insurance in retirement. Unfortunate current situation with health insurance as it can hinder growth & excellence in the public school system. Anonymous
Getting my supervisor's job would mean that I would not be a teacher anymore. I tried that for a year and then went back to the library. Anonymous
Too many refuse to take redirection, accept ongoing staff development, they think they already know everything. It’s like herding cats! Anonymous
Being a supervisor is a thankless job, usually with no back up, and minimal job security. Anonymous
I already am.
Indeed.

I have a degree in admin however, I would not want to be a principal any longer, not in this climate and with the nonsense that they deal with on a daily basis. It's just not worth it. I would sooner seek a career in another profession. Anonymous
Actually, I have my own aspirations, not to have a job of another, but do a job like no other! Anonymous
I have been teaching for 30 years; this is my passion. I enjoy learning new things and inspiring students to find learning an adventure. I am living the dream! Anonymous
I think this is an exciting time for education. It's very unfortunate that it's taking a pandemic to change and take a different look upon how we are educating our children. So this will certainly bring education and technology together to change the future of education. Anonymous
