Shameful principal priorities

Someone who wants to see the incredibly high priorities that some principals still have for their teacher recruitment should look at the list of openings and job descriptions for the high school that is the closest to my home. There are nine openings listed this evening. How many of them do you think have, as written job descriptions, that a classroom teaching post requires coaching a team as well?

The job list is below the cut-line.

Anyone who wants to see documentation can e-mail me with a request, but I wanted one step removed from making the guilty party online in such a public way as a blog, and I'm hoping the area supervisor (whom I've tipped off) has a chance to talk to the principal about this.
