Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Minneapolis Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Professional teachers, dedicated to teaching students with best research-based methods

Cons

Programs are getting cut. Too much emphasis on national testing. No Child Left Behind is a failed law written by people who were not in touch with ways to measure true learning.

Advice to Management

Paperwork does not help teach students; it only fulfills state and federal requirements that necessitate hiring government workers to read the paperwork. Needless.

    "Disheartening....for a district that serves so many diverse students, many staff members at MPS seem to be racist."

    Pros

    The students, certain staff, and the Superintendent

    Cons

    Many employees are stuck in the past....they have a mantra 'we have always done it this way' and are slow and resistant to change.


  2. "very good overall; victim of academic push-down in early ed; testing/assess't negatively impacts time to teach students"

    I have been working at Minneapolis Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Mpls offers FT teaching contracts to ECE licensed teachers

    Cons

    A long stretch of lean budget years have forced principals to eliminate support staff in early elementary classes (paras), while class sizes have increased to 25+ students
