    Former Employee - Elementary Education Teacher in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at School District of Philadelphia full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Extreme violence, no administrative support, no respect from students or parents, no support or help from parents/guardians, lack of supplies, lack of sufficient books, outdated materials, dirty environment, over-whelming paper work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the excess administration (Most do little to nothing anyway) and show support for your staff. Crack down on the violence instead of hiding it from the police and public. Use the money you will save from administrative costs (if you fire the excessive baggage that every school seems to have) and spend it on the students by buying enough supplies and books for each student.
