    once a fantastic place to work at or bring your LD child to, now not so much

    I worked at The Lab School of Washington

    Pros

    The children are the best part of working at Lab, along with some of the hardworking and dedicated staff

    Cons

    Where to start? Things started to go downhill in terms of not valuing the staff, going away from embracing the Sally Smith approach to learning and towards distancing the institution and its new head of school from all that Sally did and accomplished to help children and towards building up a new high school in order to feed the head's ego, squeezing every drop of energy and effort out of the staff while also increasing their work load but not their salary, and basically not giving a crap about morale, what would help staff do their jobs....as well as continuing to be even more disorganized in terms of failing to establish a clear curriculum that transitions well from division to division, failing at the higher divisions to provide the structured and consistent set of expectations and guidelines/support for the students, and continuing to show favoritism towards those who are "yes men/women" to the head rather than those who are committed to providing the best education the students deserve. Lots of talk about "valuing" the employee but in practice, doing anything but. Not at all the great school that it once was and now just gliding on the "brand" or past reputation of the Lab School under Sally Smith. In my own dept. where there was a change in director, we went from a director who cared greatly about both the students and the staff working under her, to one who smiles and says one thing, and then stabs you in the back with the other. I agree with the other poster that Sally would be rolling over in her grave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more respectful, kind and considerate towards the staff instead of undercutting them and making their jobs even harder. If you did, maybe the turnover rate of staff would start to slow down....previously, people loved working here and so would put up with a way below average salary. Now they just move on with their talents to another learning institution or private practice.
