Some of the best teachers around - if only the district would actually support them!

Teacher (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsGood salary and compensation, compared to other districts. Excellent teachers (yep!) who genuinely care for students, hold high expectations, and work hard at their craft. An array of programs, professional development and services for both students and teachers. Opportunities to influence kids' lives.

ConsDistrict mismanagement that has dragged on for decades. Lemon teachers who should have retired in the '80s. Budget cuts and other inane initiatives. Administrators who keep pushing assessments and test-data-results over authentic teaching. Lazy, disruptive students who refuse to learn unless it's "easy" or the teacher is "cool". A once-strong school board that has been disintegrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementForget about charter schools. Split the superintendent duties. Find relevant ways to recoup lost - and "lost" - monies to save teacher jobs. Throw more support into your teachers. Give district staffs pay cuts. Ditch the one-assessment-fits-all instructional vision and let the teachers get back to teaching.
