A teacher sent this in as a comment, but we thought it important enough to make it a stand-alone posting. Read it and weep.
I have been on the verge of tears all day. I have been reassigned to a middle school and the principal has no clue on what the guidelines for an ATR are. He asked me and I replied with teary eyes that I didn't know. He asked me how long I would be at the school. I didn't know that either. He asked how I ended up as an ATR. I wasn't sure. He asked if I could teach. I replied, "Yes, I can do that very well." He assigned me to the detention room until further notice. Damn, being an ATR really stinks.
