I've posted this on the Teacher Chatboard but then thought
I'd get the administrator perspective here. Sorry for the
repeat for those who look at both boards.
How do principals decide which teachers get to go to away
conferences? There are some teachers at my school who are
on their 4th trip and others have only been on one or for
some, none. Why are certain ones offered more opportunities
than others? They aren't necessarily the ones in leadership
positions either. Although, I don't think even the ones in
leadership positions should get all the opportunities. I
told my principal I'm interested in going. He knows I like
to learn and soak up these kinds of things, yet for the past
3 to 4 years, he hasn't sent me to any PD or any
conferences. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong?
Any ideas on why the disparity
