    I worked at Mastery Charter School

    Pros

    Clear data in terms of your student performance. Clarity regarding exactly what will be on the formative tests. All Mastery get-togethers. Great if you are a new teacher with a ton of time to commit and want to improve your basic instructional techniques.

    Cons

    Mastery is still expanding at a fast pace leaving little time to take seriously any innovation in regards to figuring out how to make their schools sustainable places of employment for adults who have families or want a dynamic life outside of their work days. Fast expansion also means that central leadership message becomes one of command and control rather than inquiry. Quick success seems to have created pressure NOT to change anything right now. If innovation is part of your motivation, then now is not the right time to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop expanding and start breaking new ground for making your schools places where teachers can work for a lifetime. Otherwise, you risk becoming another white-collar sweatshop that hires cheap young labor and burns them out, but has an effective training model in place to compensate by hiring new ones. Such a focus will also mean you are able to innovate beyond the basics delivered by direct instruction and instead add an additional model to the teaching approach that takes students to a level of critical thinking, reflection, and self-management.
