I have been working at Los Angeles USD full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Decent benefits for now, nice students, great colleagues that care about kids.

Cons

Too much standardized testing. The district is not overly organized. One department doesn"t seem to know what others are doing, so you end up spending a lot of time getting kids ready for test rather than being able to teach a full curriculum.

Advice to Management

Listen to the people who work at the school sites instead of all the paid consultants who spend little or no time in the classroom. Some of them are too far away from the classroom to fully understand the day to day realities experiences by students and the school site personnel.

    I have been working at Los Angeles USD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not working for a corporation, doing a social good, some union protection against overly abusive supervisors, good work/life balance and benefits.

    Cons

    Massive institution that sometimes doesn't know what the other hand is doing. Lots of paperwork. Mostly good people but some idiots who definitely should not be employed there (or anywhere) and you have to deal with them. Can be political.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Streamline. Come up with one set of rules and stick to them.


  2. "turbulent and unpredictable, but most of all, disappointing."

    I have been working at Los Angeles USD part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    large number of potential work sites.

    Cons

    teaching credentials required for positions that should require business credentials.

    Advice to Management

    expand perception that business professionals also need to have education credentials to satisfy business positions with the district. we should not need a teaching credential for a management position in lieu of or in addition to an MBA for example.
