    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You can make a difference in a child's life.

    Cons

    Top leadership had no idea of what it means to teach children - we are *not* a business, nor can our work be measured like workers on an assembly line. Children are not widgets. Bloomberg is disrespectful and clueless - then again, our next mayor will probably hate us even more, so better the devil you know...

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The kids are the only good thing about teaching.

    Cons

    Teachers work much longer hours than they are given credit for. The management is so weak and insecure that innovative ideas are ignored and ineffective ideas are used with the result being that teachers are told to lie about grades. The general public so disrespects the hard work you put in that people actually say they'll do it as their "retirement job."

    Advice to Management

    Monitor principals much more closely! Close the "principals academy," as it only produces insecure dictators who don't have enough experience to actually lead a school. Hire an accountant for every school and promote teachers to manage the curriculum for the school.
