A matter of blame ...

One of the difficult facts that one deals with when out in the field as a senior verifier is that in some cases there are victims. Not the students, tho the perception is that they are the prime driver for many of the decisions made. Instead I often see teaching staff become victims of their culture as well as the drive for 'supposed' standards.

Dealing with a current case, I am beginning to appreciate that even if their culture has created the problem. The teaching staff are going to fall on the sword of the situation that has evolved. New senior leadership has 'come in'; having to revive the reputation of a once lauded school and in the face of negative press coverage (which I note lacks any real facts). They seem bent on the idea that a member of their teaching team is going to have to fall on their sword in spite of the fact that the predecessors culture created the situation now present.

So, dearest reader, please take heed. There is always the chance that you will get caught up in a situation that you did not create. But find that because the environment was found wanting; so will others attempt to find you in this way.
