Pros

The best reason to work (and live) in the city is the people who live here. There are many multi-generational hard workimg middle class homeowners who are proud of their city.

Cons

The Department of Education is a mess. They claim to put "kids first" but their policies do not reflect this. They are so wrapped up in protecting themselves from bad press and potential litigation that their education policies are not conducive to student success.

Advice to Management

Spend more time in the classroom, not touring the building with administrators. Get to know your teachers and seek advice from them. They are the ones who truly care about the students and are most capable of provideing effective solutions.
