Too much bureaucracy and too little faith in teachers

Teacher (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I worked at Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools full-time for more than a year

ProsCompetitive salary compared to other districts
More job opportunities than other districts
Lots of cultural diversity within district and schools

ConsRequired to follow strict pacing guides for lesson plans
Administration puts a lot of silly requirements on teachers (down to which posters must be on your classroom walls) leaving little time for "real teaching"
Huge focus on teaching to the test

Advice to Senior ManagementLet your teachers do their job and don;t micromanage

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
