    I worked at School District of Philadelphia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diverse student body from across city; dedicated teachers and administration, depending on school; pension

    Cons

    Low salaries compared to surrounding suburbs, despite requiring Masters degree or higher; lack of trickle down for basic supplies, books, photocopies, current technology; some administrators lack basic management skills forcing teachers to work independently versus collaboratively

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting to survive; despite declining numbers of students, scores and college ready students still decling; support your teachers and students unconditionally

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at School District of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview
