    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.

    I worked at Boston Public Schools full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The young folks on the job are full of energy, some come from great homes and neighborhoods, others work daily to improve their homes and neighborhoods.

    Cons

    Environment is always changing. There are a ton of resources and people sitting at headquarters, but the real fight is is giving students skills and connections in the private sector to execute those skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time in the schools, with the young folks, you will want to get from behind the desk and work with staff and school administrators to change the course our schools have been on.
