Negative Outlook

I have been working at Oakland Unified School District full-time

Pros

It's great to see the kids learn.
I met some great teachers.
I got a chance to understand one example of the achievement gap.

Cons

Many teachers are new, so there is a lack of mentoring.
Pay is not consummate with the job.
It's difficult to make any headway due to lack of resources of many different kinds.

Advice to Management

Find ways to make international connections with other schools. Streamline upper management. Meetings do not equal professional development.
