Depends on location

Teacher (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Chicago Public Schools full-time

Pros-Very dedicated teachers
-Some schools are supportive of teacher growth

Cons-No job stability, even with tenure
-The principal/ admin determine to culture of the whole school. Some micromanage down to denying teacher access to adult washrooms.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer a stable environment for the staff and students, and both will excel.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
