You are correct. There are principals and superintendents
with integrity who would not treat any teacher who has
excellent results and tenure in such a manner but the fact
does exist that it does happen....when the money is tight,
nepotism plays a stronger role and add in the political
factor, things happen that should not happen. I guess the
administrator just needs to ask themselves, "Would I treat a
member of my own family in the same manner?" If they answer,
"No", then they should not treat others in such a manner.
However, some do and that is why the teaching environment is
sometimes a hostile environment. If you have good
connections, you SEE no problem but some teachers have their
eyes half open and what they see is that some administrators
have let power go straight to their head.
