And to add on, looking at the other side of the coin, I will also definitely not want capable KPs or SLs to step down. I have seen some teams (I myself as part of a team as well) working so productively and happily under competent leaders before. When an experienced, capable leader leaves, the whole team ends up suffering or underperforming.

Unfortunately, I have not met many of such capable leaders. Most of the capable ones I know have left or resigned. Many incompetent ones are still around.

As an ex teacher, I just want to encourage any teachers reading this post to seriously consider resigning. Iím much happier now than when I was a teacher. A large part is not having to deal with the SLs and SMC. I agree fully with above. The system is such that there will always be SLs and KPs who are totally incompetent and hence even more insecure and try to feel secure by trying to step on or put down officers, and engage in politics to make themselves feel secure. They will also be the ones that will stay as they canít get a job anywhere else. HQ will not be able to solve the problem that they contributed to. I strongly encourage younger teachers to resign as soon as you can. There is a whole world out there. Any other job is better as it wonít be plagued by this issue that canít be resolved.

Why do HODs get demoted to normal teachers, esp when they are old?

Leadership renewal and to open up opportunities for younger leaders to step up.

I have never witnessed this before though. Were they forced to?

I doubt they are forcibly demoted, but either voluntarily stepped down to focus more on personal well-being and family, or, encouraged by P to step down to refresh leadership in the respective portfolio.

I believe you meant Flexi adjunct? paid by per hr to a max amt a day, follow your last drawn pay (geo2 in this case) and no bonus no promotion no increment etc, can fire you easily by not renewing your contract.

Not too sure about tuition but going adjunct usually is not good deal until you geo5
