If you're not from Thomaston, or you're not the typical Thomastonian, your chances of having a good experience working here is poor.
This system is backward and dishonest. The administration does not care about its teachers and staff...and certainly not the students... The bottom line is power and keeping it. The teachers bully the students, the administration bullies the teachers. The entire town is terrible really and the school system has a lot of clout since it's such a small town with terrible values.
If you're not white, straight, and Christain, you will not be supported.
