    I worked at New Haven Public Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    you get to work with children and help shape there growing minds.

    Cons

    The system itself would allow children to be abused, have less education then required or the minimum, only care about there budget and coverage and not the wellbeing or actual education they are teaching the children as long as they got there pay checks they could care less.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the teachers that are HITTING the kids they are no good to the system as a whole and stop trying to hide the fact that they hit a child because you need the coverage.

    I have been working at New Haven Public Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The kids are one of a kind and look forward to learning each day. There are a fair number of professional development opportunities available for free or at a discounted rate through the district.

    Cons

    Many are unqualified within administration based on the lack of curriculum knowledge. They need to spend more time in classrooms getting to know students and student needs. Often not enough student and staff supports put in place. The salary is minuscule compared to the rest of the state and the amount of work required of our teachers within this academically , socially, and emotionally challenged district. Effective communication between parents and teachers in order to promote academic success is sometimes difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Hire administrators that care about the students and staff. They should be in classrooms often and showing interest in areas of need instead of concentrating on their own agenda of working their way up the political ladder.

    Cons

    Salary not easy to make a living in today's society

    Advice to Management

    Increase Para salary from 18,000 to at least 25,000- 30,000. Maybe based this determination off degree held and/years employed.
