I worked at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

You can make a difference in your student's lives.
If you have a good administrator, you might have a lot of freedom.

Cons

It is a big district with lots of turnover. They don't care much about individual employees.
There are a lot of micromanaging principals.
Everything is based on test scores.

Advice to Management

Make decisions based on what is best for students. Keep working condition reasonable so you don't keep losing the best teachers.
