A real worrying trend developing with 3 principals within about 15km of my school committing suicide over the past 2 years.

Work stress and lack of department assistance and support with parent issues thought to have been key contributors to at least two of them.

There is a desperate need for an independent body to handle issues the department won't, due to fear of losing votes. The system is broken and the result of that is alarming.

That is bloody horrible to read, very upsetting. Prin and AP positions are often thankless tasks, with pressure from parents, staff and the department alike. Hopefully the department actions this with immediate support.

Is this a female thing? In general from what Ive seen female Prins seem more likely to dig themselves a hole by pandering to parents. Whereas the men seem to stand up against them a bit more.
