    I worked at Bryan Independent School District (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well-educated co-workers who tried to be encouraging to their co-workers.

    Cons

    Pressure from middle-management to do more than is possible in one day. Instead of using funds to hire more teachers and assistants, the funds go to middle-management positions that pressure teachers to over-evaluate students to get metric reporting data. Teachers aren't left with enough time to teach and are then expected to go to after-school planning meetings multiple times a week on top of extra-curricular, tutoring and professional development.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting pressure on middle management and campus teachers to get metrics that aren't even required by the state. You are pushing out quality educators and helping to turn public school teaching into a second-class job.
