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

    Pros

    Teh best reason to work here is the quality and extent of the benefits: full family coverage including vision care, etc and retirement contributions.

    Cons

    LAUSD is an employer that considers its front line employees (teaching staff) to be the lowest level organizationally. Virtually any out of classroom position is considered a "promotion" and the majority are paid more than teachers. LAUSD values external resources more highly than its internal resources paying consultants and service providers more than using or developing its internal resources. Finally, LAUSD does not support its teachers in the ongoing battle for societal development of a "culture of learning" demonstrated in its lack of support of teachers when faced with discipline challenges (threats or acts of violence against teachers) or parental challenges (threats, acts of violence against teachers, neglect of parent responsibility for student participation in school).

    Advice to Management

    Neglecting and abusing staff is not the way to produce a quality product, be organizationally efficient or have a good reputation in the community. Learn to work with your teaching staff rather than against them. Listen to their expertise, consider and implement their solutions, use their skills, reward them financially and culturally, support them when they are challenged, develop them positively rather than punitively when correction is needed. Reorganize the organizational structure and language to reflect respect and support for the teaching tasks. Superintendent, board and exec management have the power to make the changes if only they would do so in earnest and with integrity.
