Pros

Dade Schools offers a place where people are encouraged to learn more and deeper into their areas of study. I taught AP Computer Science as well as Programming 1 - 3 for a number of years before returning to Science.

Several times a year they offered time and space for a number of us to meet and work on various aspects of a course.

Cons

There were times when the administration and I were at odds over how the courses were to be taught. The county sent a pacing guide that left little room for students to explore the various techniques and procedures if they did not have access to computers at home.

Advice to Management

Allow the teacher more time to have the students work hands on and study more in depth the finer points of the course.

    Pros

    Work is very slow paced and relaxing (assuming that's the kind of job you want--I didn't like it myself). Regular staff people are friendly. Good work schedule.

    Cons

    Some Administrators were bullies and completely incompetent. Promotions were based entirely on who you knew, instead of what what you knew or how good of a job you did. They assume that employees are liars and can't be trusted, and many staff members are actively discouraged from going out of their way to help anyone who is not in their own department.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the incompetent Administrators who think that doing their job entails engaging in abusive behavior with subordinates. Hire and promote staff based on superior job performance, not on who they happen to be friends with.
