    Pros

    Union plays an important role in keeping management focused on quality of work life for teachers.

    Cons

    Boston public schools is a very political environment - Individuals who may be incompetent are given promotions and recognized as long as they are politically astute..

    Advice to Management

    Top down approach to management is not effective in a school system. Management should elicit more input from teachers and parents before making major decisions.

    I have been working at Boston Public Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay compared to other districts. Great Heath benefits. Great opportunities to help student growth.

    Cons

    Expectations not listed in the job description. Policies that are not reviewed as whole staff at meetings at the beginning of each school year so new staff can learn the ropes; must be learned the hard way. The union is meant to protect but it can also get you. Paraprofessional position under appreciated. No paid or limited non-pay professional developments or training for para staff. Limited opportunity for financial growth after BA degree.

    Advice to Management

    Develop paid trainings. Exchange one sick day per year in to one additional personal day.
