    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 have been working at Boston Public Schools full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with amazing youth in need of excellent support. I also loved collaborating with families and the many 3rd part organizations that work with BPS.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red tape in BPS especially when it comes to trying to launch new initiatives. This was the most difficult aspect of teaching in BPS for me.
