I work as a secondary public school teacher. II am being held to higher standards than other staff. This is not just my own observation, but several other co-workers have pointed this out, as I got in trouble for things (e.g. once being late for 2 minutes to cafeteria duty), while others get away with much (e.g. skipping cafeteria duty for half the semester).
This issue is especially apparent in our evaluations, which cover most aspects of the job. The state created a standardized checklist for evaluating teachers. Those who get a good evaluation from the principal earn a $6000 bonus from the state. This is an extensive list, but includes things like, showing up on time for work, submitting lesson plans, having materials ready for substitute teachers, taking part in after-school activities, training co-workers, quality of teaching, etc.
I learned that, at the end of the year, several staff, who did not make their lesson plans, did not have substitute plans, were regularly late for work (making me have to watch their students in the morning), and blatantly messing around in the classroom, will be earning the $6000 bonus. Meanwhile, I consistently stayed on top of my duties throughout the whole year, but just earned a neutral 50% score on every item in my evaluation.
How to deal with not being held to the same standards as co-workers?
