I’ll start.

One that is immediately applicable to me having just moved to Keith AS as Principal from Adelaide is the issue that leaders who have partners who are permanent teachers seem to have no bargaining power in getting work for their wife/husband. It seems it is left to the Principal to work through the standard staffing process.

In my case how do I avoid perceptions of nepotism if I appoint my wife over anybody else, especially in a school where there are more TRTs/contract teachers in the community than there are jobs??

It seems a very awkward and compromising position to put a new Principal to the school in. Surely our system can do better than this for both the new leader and the DECD partner.
