    I have been working at Anne Arundel County Public Schools full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing teachers who work together to overcome our leadership.

    Cons

    Our board of ed is massive and wastes so much money on random initiatives that they keep changing. They don't care for or listen to the teachers and blame us for problems, then wonder why we can't find teachers to hire. Since Arlotto has come in moral has plummeted but they won't recognize that they are the reason. Nepotism is also rampant throughout the board of ed keeping many terrible people in their jobs.
