          I have been working at Fulton County Schools full-time for more than 5 years

          Pros

          Pay is good (but you don't pay into social security so work somewhere else the last five years before you retire). Grade levels support each other. Good working teacher laptops and students have devices for middle and high.

          Cons

          Lower performing schools are pushing students along that are at least one grade level, Pattern of hiring young and aggressive leadership that doesn't protect their school staff. Treat teachers as expendable and use TKES (very subjective) to get rid of teachers that admin doesn't like. Massive turn-over at the school this year, some requested transfers out, some leaving district for better work environment or easier...

          Advice to Management

          Choose more seasoned leaders in your schools. Stop promoting self-centered and overly ambitious leadership looking out for their careers more than leading and nurturing their staff.
