The District is privatizing and firing teachers for little or no reason

I worked at Los Angeles USD full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The district used to offer lifetime health benefits -- but not any more. There are no positive reasons to work for LAUSD if you can find any other school district.

Cons

The Board is oblivious to anything but politics. The Board dismisses teachers without knowing all the facts, especially exculpatory evidence

    I have been working at Los Angeles USD

    Pros

    It's a huge school district so that means you will definitely gain some experience and also have room for advancement.

    Cons

    As a part-time assistant at a LAUSD school, our pay is pretty low so its recommended that you find a second job.

    I worked at Los Angeles USD part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Kids for the most part are great!

    Cons

    Top heavy with do nothing administrators. Money wasted on programs that do not get results, teaching to the test, i.e., "they knew everything, but understood nothing." Teach people how to think, not memorize facts. Old boy network that is schlerotic, slow movomg cumbersome... bright, innovative, creative, people are punished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish oversight by qualified civilian personal with no financial, or business ties to Board Of Education. Establish trade school programs. Tailor education to kids's aptitudes and talents. Establish psychological, and business programs beginning with middle school.
