    Pros

    Culture in Richmond public schools is rapidly improving because of the district's progressively close ties with Teach For America, the district recruits many strong TFA teachers into the classrooms, PD is offered both through the district and TFA, administration is spread thin so there's more freedom than other schools/districts to teach in your unique and authentic style...

    Cons

    Little transparency on paystubs, considerable inefficiency in the district offices (which closes at 4:30 while most school says end at 3:30 and this feels intentionally evasive), long reaction times to teachers' pedestrian issues at their schools, there are more bad teachers than good teachers and the district shortage discourages firing them
