    Can't spell absurd without ARUSD

    Teacher (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsThe kids and their families; starting salary higher than most other places in the Bay; (mostly) caring teachers and staff

    ConsTook 2 years to negotiate a 1-year contract; 1st and 2nd year teachers laid off (excessed/non-re-elected) every year due to budget constraints since charters are moving in, yet some district personnel making lots of bank for reasons unbeknownst to me; admin did not want sped students mainstreamed; some schools get more funding than others (e.g. iPads for a new school); some schools do not teach science and social studies for their test scores

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease think about what's best for the kids in every decision

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
