I worked at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

I had a few very good students.

Cons

CMS just doesn't understand that discipline is their biggest problem. If the system worked on just this one issue, test scores would go way up. They just can't seem to hire principals that know how to turn a school around. I had six in 14 years and they all were ineffective.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Deal with the poor discipline and hire principals that will support the teachers.

    Pros

    You can make a difference in your student's lives.
    If you have a good administrator, you might have a lot of freedom.

    Cons

    It is a big district with lots of turnover. They don't care much about individual employees.
    There are a lot of micromanaging principals.
    Everything is based on test scores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions based on what is best for students. Keep working condition reasonable so you don't keep losing the best teachers.
