Hard-working district drowning under mandates

Teacher (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

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

ProsDiverse community with hard working teachers and administrators. Strong community support and parent involvement.

ConsToo many mandates brought down from leadership...WAY too big, and not equitable in distribution of resources.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop putting more and more burden on the school's just to show off on the national stage. If you want to show great progress, change your district leadership and policies.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros: Summers and major holidays off, depending on the age group… Cons: They want you to teach to the test and the kids are not prepared to be competitive in the real world.… Advice to Senior Management: Re-evaluate how you promote principals to central office positions, most of them… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
