    I worked at Charter Schools USA full-time

    Pros

    If you're into data driving your lessons, then this is the place for you. They offer gifted education and the Cambridge program.

    Cons

    Administration has no interest in sending true problem students away from this school. Students know they can get away with being troublemakers. Students allege teachers are pedophiles and the student just moves to another classroom. Students allege teachers punch them (with camera evidence showing otherwise) and the student just moves classrooms. A dozen data collection websites fill your off-time. They fire people right before winter break so they don't have to pay through that time, because they're in it for the money and not for the education of our youth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your faculty. Work with them in solving the problems that are running through your halls. Don't sweep things under the rug.

    Pros

    Loved the people that I worked with, still get together with some of them on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. While a promotion was talked about, there was no talk about an actual plan

    Advice to Management

    Understand that if you want quality employees, you have to pay them what they are worth. Too many people see CSUSA as a "place filler"
