    I worked at Stamford Public Schools full-time

    Pros

    -Very good Benefits -Working for an organization whose product truly matters (educating children)

    Cons

    The following were all a constant in the Central Office of the school system (I never worked in any of the schools): -Vicious culture (paranoia, backstabbing, fear, pettiness), and the assertiveness/ aggression of several Unions within the school district and City certainly played a part -Shuffling of roles and reporting lines -Excruciatingly long process in getting the next year's proposed Budget reviewed & approved by the required 3 Boards (the Boards of Education, Finance, and Representatives) -Complex political structure: too many Boards having a say about how a school system should be run & deciding on its funding


  3. Excellent disctrict and reliabel job opportunity.

    Pros

    Great teachers, nice families, most building administrators are pretty decent folk

    Cons

    The central office administration has NO CLUE what goes down at the building level. They grasp onto trends and products they think are the magic bullet to get test scores up. They pack on more and more requirements and demands without really knowing what our student population is like.

    Advice to Management

    spend some real time in the school buildings, not just a walk through where everyone pretends they are happy to see you. Give the staff some REAL professional development, not just time killing nonsense.

    Walk around the building on a daily basis

    Pros

    It is a very large school system where there are many different schools each with its own personality.

    Cons

    The pay for substitute teachers has not increased in a decade. There is no support from administration if there is a problem.
