91% Of The Staff At Forest Hills High School Votes No Confidence Of Principal Ben Sherman
Can A terrible Principal destroy a great school? Just ask the faculty at Forest Hills High School and they will tell you yes. 91% of the facility gave Principal Ben Sherman a no confidence vote in a poll conducted recently. His failure to collaborate with staff, make questionable decisions detrimental to students and staff alike, and goes after teachers with a passion reserved only for the worst principals in Queens..
Principal Ben Sherman has a history of problems with school staff before he was given the Principal job at Forest Hills High School. He was already despised by school staff in his previous school, East-West International . You can read it on the ICEUFT blog Here. You can also see that Principal Ben Sherman had one of the lowest teacher trust factor when it came to Queens high schools during the 2015-16 school year at East-West Here.
Ben Sherman, despite his problems with the staff at East-West, was promoted by Superintendent Juan Mendez who always seem to select and protect the worst Principals in the Queens high schools. Just read my posts Here and Here and who can forget this?
Now Principal Ben Sherman has made life miserable for the staff at Forest Hills High School and once again has one of the lowest trust factors in all of Queens high schools. You can see my list Here. His teacher trust factor is lower than the infamous Judy Henry and Namita Dwarka.
Will Chancellor Carranza remove Ben Sherman? Probably not unless the Forest Hills faculty can get Susan Edelman to published a New York Post article about the Forest Hills High School fiasco.
NYC Educator, Ed Notes online and the ICEUFT blog have also written about the Forest Hills fiasco..
