    As a former teacher, all educational administrators slither! Those who can, teach, those who can’t become principals!

    I always took it as those who can’t teach, administrate.

    I’m trying to figure out why the principal would even assume the remark was referencing him.

    Why does Principal Skinner ring a bell to me?

    Or as Oscar Wilde (the great Irish writer) said “Those who can do, those who can’t teach”.

    Those who can build, build; those who can’t build, inspect; those who can’t build or inspect, write the building code.

    I would offer a friendly amendment: ‘and those who prove the Peter Principle become Superintendents.’ E.g., Mr. Murphy of PG County (1 year’s teaching experience) who famously said that “competent teachers could produce individualized lesson plans for all of their students, every day.” Any person who used common sense would wonder when s/he did anything but make lesson plans for 185 pupils!
