    Pros

    Great students, sense of purpose, some of the schools are great to work for.

    Low pay, bad state legislature, voter apathy, short on resources, insurmountable institutional inertia

    Give new teachers more time in the school day to master their craft. Empower good principals to remove bad teachers, and attract good ones.
