Transitioning? No, no I can't permit you to influence the children with this ridiculous behaviour.
~ The Principal to Ms. Harper

The Principal is the overarching antagonist of the 2019 sci fi horror musical tie-in film K-12, the partnering piece to the album of the same name by Melanie Martinez and also acts as the titular main antagonist in the music video for the third song in the album The Principal as well as the fifth Drama Club.

He is portrayed by Toby Eddington.

Biography

Early Life

Not much is known about The Principal's life before the events of the movie. Which is obvious due to him not even being named. The only thing that's known is that he has a son named Leo and an unnamed wife. It's implied that he doesn't love his wife. That's evident because on a picture of his family his wife's face is removed. He has an affair  with one of the female teachers Ms. Daphne. He is the principal of K-12 Sleepaway School and is very greedy and cruel.

The film

The Principal is first seen when he together with Ms. Daphne confronts Ms. Harper about her "ridiculous behavior" referring to Ms. Harper's transitioning from Mr. Harper to Ms. Harper. He cruelly fires her for being transgender and while this is happening, Cry Baby sees one of the students taking pills and asks why. He tells her that The Principal forces "medication" on to the children to control them, so they are unable to leave the school. Crybaby uses her powers to see The Principal firing Ms. Harper. She is angered about that and the pills and uses her powers again to call him and begins insulting him and calling him out on all the bad things he have done. The Principal drinks a poisoned drink and nearly dies but Ms. Daphne says to the bunny doctors to cure him. 

Later Crybaby is forced to play a role in the Drama Club even though she doesn't want to. At the show she tells everyone in the audience to "open their eyes" and realize they're being brainwashed by The Principal. Her powers takes everyone out of the brainwash and then the students rushes to The Principal's office with Crybaby at the front forming a revolution. In the office the students tear The Principal apart from limb to limb killing him. Crybaby and Angelita the buries The Principal on the school ground and goes to play tennis. After some time his son Leo comes to the school and takes the role as principal.

Personality

The Principal is described by Crybaby as sneaky, greedy and money-seeking. He is controlling, calculating and very cruel. The things he does is very sick and brutal. He forces drugs on to the children so they can't leave the school just so he can get more money from the children's parents. He hates people who are different which is evident by the way he treats Ms. Harper, when he cruelly fires her just because she's transgender. That shows that he is transphobic and xenophobic. The Principal is also very cold against his wife because he cheats on her with Ms. Daphne. He is shown to be an abuser who only cares about himself and his wealth.

The Principal is (according to Melanie Martinez) a metaphor and symbol for the 45th President of the United States  Donald Trump. It is a critique for how he is cruel and greedy, allowing innocent people, including children, to die just so he can get his way. Throughout his presidency, he has caused a great deal of separation among his people and causes many people to struggle.

The Principal (song)

K-12 is a theatrical movie where all of the songs in Melanie Martinez album is present. One song is dedicated to The Principal and the song is also called The Principal. The song features in the scene where Crybaby uses her powers to call The Principal to tell him what she and everyone really thinks about him. Melanie Martinez has said that one song is actually about Donald Trump. Fans speculated that it was The Principal song because The Principal character is a metaphor for Donald Trump.

The lyrics:

Sneaky, greedy, money seeking
Always peeping, fucking creeping
Got it on the down low
So you think you always squeaky
What if I had told your mother
Her son was a cruel motherfucker? Ah

It's not just me, it's everybody
Who thinks that you're fucking ugly
When you come and hurt us
Just so you can get your money
Forced to follow the leader
Who's being possessed by demons

I've tried to make you listen
But you won't, it's your way, right?
Killing kids all day and night
Prescription pills and online fights
Shooting at the angels while
Claiming you're the good guy
All you want is cash and hype
Fuck our dreams and that's not right

The principal, oh, oh
Oh, where's the principle?
Oh, where's the principle?
Oh, where's the principle? Oh, oh
Oh, where's the principle?
Oh, where's the principle?

Complicated, overrated
You're fixated and elated
By the separation in this place that you've created
Fuck all of your rules and guidelines
You shouldn't even be on the sidelines

Can't you see that we're all hurtin'?
If you're not teaching, we're not learnin'
Excuse me, how much are you earnin'?

I've tried to make you listen
But you won't, it's your way, right?
Killing kids all day and night
Prescription pills and online fights
Shooting at the angels while
Claiming you're the good guy
All you want is cash and hype
Fuck our dreams and that's not right

The principal, oh, oh
Oh, where's the principle?
Oh, where's the principle?
Oh, where's the principle? Oh, oh
Oh, where's the principle?
Oh, where's the principle?

You don't know the pain that you are causing
Yeah, your actions hurt, so do your words
The more you try to fuck us over
We will be there yelling at your front door

I've tried to make you listen
But you won't, it's your way, right?
