    This was a very stressful work environment; teachers were harrassed by the administration until they resigned or retired

    Current Employee - Teacher in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Winter break and summers off

    Cons

    My principal picked teachers off one by one. The turnover rate was incredible.The administration specifically targeted older teachers. Administration caved to the demands of parents. The graduation retention rate is a joke. Teachers were pressured to pass students who did not learn because the principal's bonus depended on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make public shools about education.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.
