Like any workplace, schools can be plagued by adult slackers or agitators who, whether intentionally or not, can sabotage morale and campus culture.

And principals, especially those new to the job, often need help dealing with those adults hiding in plain sight, working against principals' proposals and best-laid plans, the veteran educators say.
