This was an article that I wrote with Donna Widdison for IEU's IE magazine. The original publication can be found here.

The practice of hiring and letting people go within six months is problematic for all employment situations, but especially in education where stability is crucial for both student and teacher development, as well as school culture. This article muses that using the first six months of employment as the final vetting step in recruitment is damaging to all involved, and that managers who behave in this fashion are exhibiting poor skills as well as changing the culture of the school for the worse.
