I worked at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Plenty of opportunity to grow as an educator. Professional Development is available if you want to continue developing as an educator.

Cons

Lots of paper work and headaches. The district is huge and there is a lot of micromanaging. Leadership is always changing.

Advice to Management

Try not to micromanage as much

    I have been working at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Winter break and summers off

    Cons

    My principal picked teachers off one by one. The turnover rate was incredible.The administration specifically targeted older teachers. Administration caved to the demands of parents. The graduation retention rate is a joke. Teachers were pressured to pass students who did not learn because the principal's bonus depended on it.

    Advice to Management

    Make public shools about education.
