    I worked at Cobb County School District full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The kids and parents.... always. The pay is good, and that is the primary reason - and not a good one- that teachers stay.

    Cons

    Does not value all people of all walks of life. Lacks true inclusion to support the diverse population of teachers as well as students. HR is manipulative and does not and is not there to support teachers and staff. "Evidence" is manufactured against teachers, for the district knows that teachers who truly love teaching will accept a "deal" rather than have their certification sanctioned... It is like Law and Order... except there is no ethical law and there is no order.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management.... stop white washing the schools....

    I worked at Cobb County School District full-time

    Pros

    You have lots of opportunity to assist students and help different kinds of learners.

    Cons

    Many parents threaten to sue and the school system caters to them.
    Pay is low for responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Increase Paraprofessional Pay.
    Let the sue happy parents sue, stop catering to those who threaten to sue. Let county attorneys fight these fights.
    If student's are not progressing, (i.e. 19 years old and in 9th grade) send them to alternative, online, or adult schools. A 19 year old doesn't need to be in classes with a 14 year old. These kids are at the schools for other reasons...dealing drugs, recruiting for gangs...
