Difficult and Ruthless

Special Education Teacher, Middle School (Former Employee)
Baltimore, MD

I worked at Baltimore City Public School System full-time for more than a year

ProsThe kids really need you and the work is rewarding

ConsIt's emotionally abusive, evaluations are based on personal rather than professional relationships, and it's very difficult work.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry valuing your teachers as people not just as test driven, MSA machines. Also having principals being solely responsible for evaluations is a terrible idea.

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