Pros

The diversity and community support. Berkeley is an exciting place to be the and the kids are great. Committed and dedicated teachers who regularly go above and beyond.

Cons

The achievement gap is overwhelming! The difference between the people who are privileged and those who are needy is staggering and those who are privileged talk the talk about equality but not at the expense of their own children.

Advice to Management

Are we really ready to look at issues of equality? Or are we just jumping on the 2020 vision without really putting any meat behind it?

    Pros

    Pros: This is a fairly small district. The pay is fairly low especially when you look at the neighboring districts. There is a strong emphasis on inclusion. White males need not apply.

    Cons

    Cons: Union is completely ineffectual. The human resources and personnel department are in shambles.The middle school has a lunatic principal.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Management- don't hire principals who have never been teachers and who do not like kids. The principal at Washington cries all the time.
