I worked at Worcester Public Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Teaching within Worcester is challenging but the students make it all worth it.

Cons

Administrations abuse of power and use of nepotism is not helpful for someone who works hard but won't use who they know to get ahead.

Advice to Management

Hire people that earn the job not know the right person.
