Okay but it could be better. Love what I do just not the politics!

Teacher (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsDecent benefits for now, nice students, great colleagues that care about kids.

ConsToo much standardized testing. The district is not overly organized. One department doesn"t seem to know what others are doing, so you end up spending a lot of time getting kids ready for test rather than being able to teach a full curriculum.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people who work at the school sites instead of all the paid consultants who spend little or no time in the classroom. Some of them are too far away from the classroom to fully understand the day to day realities experiences by students and the school site personnel.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    turbulent and unpredictable, but most of all, disappointing.
