      Pros

      Nice people and wonderful supervisors.

      The money paid has a percentage taken out to pay for summer pay. No where paid enough for the stress of dealing with children on a daily basis.

      Pros

      There are many parents that support the schools district.

      Cons

      Beasley and Simpson (and a few others) are originally from DeKalb County. There was definitely this assumption Beasley and his team would save CCPS, but when him and the "A- Team" came on in 2018, it was apparent they were here because they had to run away from the mess they spewed in DeKalb. Many will speak highly of CCPS; those that do enjoy a lackadaisical county that thrives off of old and tired principals that stack their checks and throw all of their duties on either their AP's or vested teachers. Beasley is notorious for deescalating complaints from female staff members and loves to say, " chain of command." It is assumed that since he is an African-American pastor, real-estate agent, and superintendent that is in the best interest for the children but that's false. He is in the best interest for HIS children. The county needs a COMPLETE purge. From the bottom to the top. Beasley cut teacher bonuses and every year he demands an increase. The area-superintendent which are mostly previous principals practice the "Good Old Boy" system and ignore teacher complaints. The entire organization as a whole sheds light on why this county lost accreditation.
