    Pros

    Four weeks of vacation from the first day you start. Union negotiated wages get applied to Administration staff as well as teachers so you get regular pay increases. You are part of a team helping to provide opportunities for kids. Management understands a work/life balance.

    Cons

    Honestly can't think of any....

    I worked at Little Rock School District full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly staff environment of community, hours of work align with life and work balance , opportunity to influence, educate, and support many children and families in the community. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Micromanaged that interfered with quality, creative educating environment and relationships with the children. Behavior issues and lack of administrative and parental support created too many interruptions that had an effect on learning. Chaos of yelling in cafeteria harmful to children. Creating a sense of fear nd dread.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an more inviting environment in the cafeteria,; possibly add soothing. Classical musiic as well as common areas/courtyards for teachers and students.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, stable job industry, great vacation and holiday time off, good pension plan, doesn't require highly specialized knowledge

    Constant change in upper management, no professional development for clerical, pay is based upon service time only rather than performance, little recognition, no advancement without teacher's certificate, easy to become stagnated, efficiency is not rewarded

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to retain talented and efficient employees, develop professional development, formal recognition, and paths of advancement for non-certified staff.

    Depends on the Principals

    I have been working at Little Rock School District

    Pros

    Co-workers are very supportive. Many professional development opportunities.

    Cons

    If anything goes wrong, everyone will blame the teacher. No matter if you have alerted Principals and parents regarding the situation. Principals can make your life HXXL - be careful when selecting a school. Teachers have tons of extra paperwork, meetings, and parent calls to make so you will spend min. 3 hours every night grading and prepping for the next day - and more time on the weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Principals who don't support their teachers.
