    I have been working at Kent School District part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They work hard at trying to have every child succeed.

    Cons

    The district requires too strict guidelines of following set curriculum. It doesn't allow for teachers to share in areas of their strengths. Too much testing. Too much paperwork. Not enough time to teach.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the successful schools and principals in your own district and learn from what they are doing. Encourage sharing of ideas of these successful schools with failing schools. Require principals to visit those successful schools. Encourage sharing of school developed curriculum and methods of delivery that work with other schools.
