I have been working at Boston Public Schools

Pros

The diversity of staff and students is very appealing. Teachers are given professional development, not only to maintain licensure, but to keep abreast of teaching trends and their impact at the classroom level. Boston also has a number of programs with local colleges and universities for advanced degrees at substantially reduced cost.

Cons

Large central adminstration can hinder effective communication to employees. The school department is under new leadership. It is difficult to determine how the new management structue will steamline management and insure that the majority of resources are delivered to our students.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure new structure is understood by all employees.

    I have been working at Boston Public Schools

    Pros

    Union plays an important role in keeping management focused on quality of work life for teachers.

    Cons

    Boston public schools is a very political environment - Individuals who may be incompetent are given promotions and recognized as long as they are politically astute..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top down approach to management is not effective in a school system. Management should elicit more input from teachers and parents before making major decisions.
