In education, teachers may use the term "the district" when referring to the school district. It often has a negative connotation.
An example may be: "I heard 'the district' is going to cut all of our benefits to save money." I am looking for a word that I could use in a sentence such as:
"Other generations of teachers are left feeling they do not have a voice, their 'people focus' is not valued by the _________ district."
Ominous does not seem quite right. It would be a word meaning dark, presumed to intend harm, faceless, cold, and uncaring.
