    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Chicago Public Schools as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady pay is the only thing they have to offer. Then again, that is all some people are looking for. It is very sad!

    Cons

    Not shown respect by principals or fellow teachers. Students are often unruly because they believe they can get away. They often can, with passive substitute teachers.

    Advice to Management

    Care about teachers!
