To answer a question, none of them are in a supervisory position - thank goodness. We only have three admin at my school and they are all very good at maintaining their professionalism - I don't feel they have obvious favorites or "buddies."
One of them IS a counselor (we have one for each grade level) and this is annoying - mostly because I don't feel like she is good at her job, so I have to deal with her ineptitude once every three years. She is also known to do favors for others in the club - like having problem students undergo a sudden, unexplained schedule change, for example. I figure making a fuss about stuff like that would just make things worse, and there are some "problem" students that I've really gotten to like
ETA: Bonyk - I read your thread and couldn't even think of how I would manage to remain polite during said slideshow. For that to happen is bad enough, for admin to be at the head of it is horrible. I hope your district does a Teaching and Learning Conditions survey (or something like it) - that is horrible. Any halfway decent administrator knows that creating divides like that on campus will negatively impact the students in the end.
