I have been a teacher at Marshall for 2 years. It has been the hardest job I have ever had. It has become harder since the arrival of Dr. Forte, the Principal. He is trying to get Marshall changed to a magnet school. This is commendable, however, he has intimidated and bullied the teachers at Marshall since day one. There have been 12 teachers from a staff of 24 who have requested a transfer this year. He has not even come close to supporting teachers in the classroom this year and behavior is out of control. If he thinks that just by turning Marshall into a magnet school will solve all the problems at Marshall, then he should guess again. You still have to support your teachers. They are the backbone of any school. The supporting rhetoric is there, but unfortunately it turns out to be rhetoric only.
Marshall is doing just fine. All that saying negative things, about them you need prayer. Remember this school is one of columbus oldest black school. These other schools does'nt do no more than Marshall.
