I have been working at Minneapolis Schools full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Professional teachers, dedicated to teaching students with best research-based methods

Cons

Programs are getting cut. Too much emphasis on national testing. No Child Left Behind is a failed law written by people who were not in touch with ways to measure true learning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Paperwork does not help teach students; it only fulfills state and federal requirements that necessitate hiring government workers to read the paperwork. Needless.

    Disheartening....for a district that serves so many diverse students, many staff members at MPS seem to be racist.

    I worked at Minneapolis Schools

    Pros

    The students, certain staff, and the Superintendent

    Cons

    Many employees are stuck in the past....they have a mantra 'we have always done it this way' and are slow and resistant to change.

    I have been working at Minneapolis Schools full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Balanced work and personal life.

    Cons

    The health benefits for family is very expensive and increasing every year. The salary range is very low compared to other public or private sector. There is no bonus system. There is no appreciation or recognition to hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT jobs should be treated differently.In order to retain staff should consider bonus system and appreciate work.The pay should be at par with the market.
