Pros

Good people, good purpose, good communications are all part of daily life at CPS. The benefits are very good as compared to other local employers.

Cons

Public scrutiny of course since we are educating kids and are funded by local taxes makes everything we do judged and rejudged.

    Pros

    Good supportive co-workers.Good health benefits. Finish at 2.30.

    Cons

    Not mentally stimulating enough for me. Start at 7.00am. Physically challenging and tiring. sometimes feel like a 'glorified' babysitter. Low hourly rate and not paid when kids not in school. Financially restricting only being paid for 9 months to cover 12 months expenses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much counter productive testing.

    I have been working at Columbia Public School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Columbia Public Schools has a rich history of being cutting-edge in setting high standards of education for all of its students and for providing support for classroom professionals to constantly improve their knowledge-base and professional development. Recent tight years of the economy have eroded support for classroom teachers as well as competitive salaries. The potential for greatness is still present but a lot of work needs to be done to restore CPS to its former position as among the top-ranked academic districts in the state.

    Cons

    Currently teaching conditions are very difficult with large class sizes and little additional support.
