    I worked at New York City Department of Education (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fairly reliable pay check. Fair amount of job security, in the past, provided you were fully certified. The movement now is towards "corporatizing" and disposability.

    Cons

    See above. Also, lots of bureaucratic red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Give educational professionals (teachers) agency, credit and respect. DO not hire educators who really aren't up to the task. If you find that one of your teachers fits that description, don't grant tenure.


  2. "emphasis on testing leaves little time for real teaching"
