Never say ANYTHING that comes across as negative or derogatory about your current job. |
You're leaving to pursue other opportunities. Period. That's IT. If they ask you to explain, state that you're trying to find a different (not better, not another, just different) place where you can pursue your career goals, where you feel you'll be a better fit for the program/school.
Don't EVER say anything bad about a current employer (or former employer) in any sort of on-the-record situation. If you do, that sort of behavior can and WILL come back to bite you. It may not be in the form of a defamation suit (which is possible if you put things in writing like some people have discussed in this thread) but it will when your FUTURE principal calls your NEXT one to discuss your job and current employment.
