My opinion about being a teacher in LAUSD

Teacher (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsUsed to be a great place to teach that cared about employees and children in my opinion
The union is becoming powerless in my opinion

ConsMy opinion:
Teachers are scapegoats, are given little respect for their expertise, wishes are ignored.
Parents have no accountability for their children.
Parents come on school campus at will, roam from class to class, teachers trying to teach their classes continually have to put on a show for parents and numerous daily visitors from administrators and their personal friends.
Administrators show favoritism to a select few employees, "spies"
Supplies are very limited and much needs to be purchased by the individual teachers with no reimbursement whatsoever.
Raises are completely unheard of, as the district does not value employees.
Prepare to have no home life as you will work 7 days a week, evenings and weekends. (for free)

Advice to Senior ManagementLet the teachers teach
Show some appreciation once in a while
I have no other advice for managment that can be printed here.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Excellent teachers (yep!) who genuinely care for students, hold high expectations, and work… Cons: District mismanagement that has dragged on for decades. Lemon teachers who should have retired in the '80s. Budget cuts and other inane initiatives. Administrators who… Advice to Senior Management: Forget about charter schools. Split the superintendent duties. Find relevant ways to recoup lost - and "lost" - monies to save teacher jobs.… More

    LAUSD - A nice place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    Pros: LAUSD has the right mix of job for everyone.
