Some schools harass teachers, others don't care about students, and others are just concerned about making their AYP.

    Pros

    great benefits
    opportunities for over time
    summers off

    Cons

    obnoxious amounts of paperwork
    our "efficiency" depends mostly on students test scores/achievement progression

    Advice to Management

    Please keep in mind how truly important it is for our students with disabilities to receive the services they are entitled to, based on their IEP's.

    Pros

    Working with kids is one of the most rewarding things you can do with your life. Teaching a class of students is an amazing opportunity.

    Cons

    Special education teachers are chronically overworked and given sub-standard materials, as well as little to no practical instruction on how to do their jobs. Most people working as classroom teachers feel like little more than babysitters.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, Improve your curriculum, and become familiar with the actual meanings of "data-based" and "best practices"/
