    horrible upper management, high turnover in certain jobs, mistreatment of women, mismanagement of funds

    Advice to Management

    you have employees who care and are devoted to the school and want to make a difference. they work hard and stay late not for the pay. use them and their enthasium, enable them instead of crushing them and their ideals! when theres a problem they can help fix it instead of you trying to cover it up. please stop being baby bullies and grow up. apologize and lets move on to make working results. the blind need us to be true experts
