    I have been working at Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Comparable Pay to other counties
    Ample Professional Development (stipend paid for most sessions)
    Good Leadership in the county as a whole
    Positive working environment

    Cons

    Some schools are run by people who are not qualified
    Students change schools quite often
    Lack of support for general ed teachers in non-tested areas

    Advice to Management

    Be sure that all students are being held to the same standards and that they are actually being prepared for college/workforce. Not allowing students to fail does not prepare them for the real world.
