    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    This is a very difficult and challenging job because you are dealing with youth for whom education was not a high priority when they were in the free and now that they are incarcerated they are forced to attend school. It is, however, very rewarding when you see the "light bulb" come on for one of these youth!!

    Cons

    These students can be very confrontational and even physically agressive most of the time. You are at risk daily for being assaulted. That is why teachers receive "hazardous duty pay" for this position. Burn out is very high in these positions.

    Advice to Management

    It is vital that people in these positions feel valued. They need to hear that they are doing a good job and need to hear it regularly.
