    Pros

    Passionate, inspiring educators. Great managers and dedicated teammates. Very good learning experience and chance to be at the center of true education reform.

    Pros

    The union is strong and supportive. You get many long vacations. They provide a good health plan and many sick days. it sometimes feels good to be education the next generation. you sometimes get to go on field trips.

    Cons

    Public schools are oppressive, uptight places. Principals and district officials tend to be unsupportive autocrats. The work is exhausting and stressful. Pay is better than at food restaurants, but still too low for the effort involved.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain some coherence with your Liberal values and eliminate the 19th Century Factory School mentality. It serves neither students nor employees.
