    I worked at Sacramento City USD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    it was close to home

    Cons

    There is no continuity in leadership. It is like the X-Files, no one really ever leaves. The school board balked at increasing teacher salaries but created 56 new management jobs. It is fixed.and unless you are part of the dominant group, good luck getting any recognition

    Advice to Management

    Honor your staff and quit trying to underpay, under cut and undermine them.
