    I worked at Los Angeles USD full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You can make a difference in a child's life here, and good people are desperately needed. Think of it as the Peace Corps without leaving the country.

    Cons

    The upper management is corrupt and nobody who is honest is secure. They will work you as hard as you let them and they will get rid of you as soon as they can when you reach the top of the pay scale. You have to keep your head down and your mouth shut to survive. The union is completely useless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Veteran educators have great value in the classroom and should be cherished. Also, if you want to make money without earning it honestly, go into another field and stop ruining children's lives.
