I have been working at Los Angeles USD part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Large company and higher pay than other school districts. Great access to professional development opportunities, if you know where to look. Lots of amazing educational professionals.

Cons

Large company and the bureaucracy is mind numbing. Educators are subject to furlough days and pay cuts while expected to raise test scores and improve student achievement. The math just doesn't add up.

    I have been working at Los Angeles USD full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Too 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.

    Negative Outlook
