    Pros

    The children at this school are some of the most loving and authentic I have ever worked with. They are so full of life and will create an unbreakable bond with adults who respect them as their equals.

    Cons

    This network does not pay teachers what they deserve and have unrealistic expectations of what can be done during the school day. I grew tired of teachers being blamed for every problem and no accountability was taken on the part of leadership (and no apology). If you value autonomy, this is not the right place for you. Everything here is micro managed even when they claim they are giving you freedom. This network does not have subs, so when people call out (and they WILL call out), you are doing the coverages. Leadership is quick to blame teachers for taking time off, but ignore the real issue: Why does your staff not want to come in? Why do they need so many mental health days? Instead of answering these questions, more blame is placed on teachers instead looking at the real problem. If you have any ounce of respect for yourself and your worth, this is not the place for you.

    Democracy Prep Public Schools Response

    We agree that our scholars are wonderful! Thank you for your feedback. This year, we did a comprehensive study of our salaries and implemented a revamped and competitive compensation system for the 22-23 SY. Unfortunately one of the side effects of the pandemic is a nation-wide shortage of substitute teachers. We are committed to finding and providing coverage when it's available, but like many school districts right now, the pool is incredibly limited. We know that as a teacher it adds to your workload to cover for another class, and we appreciate your hard work and dedication to our scholars.
