    I worked at School Board of Alachua County part-time

    Pros

    -reasonable pay for the state of Florida
    -decent support system for starting teachers
    -plentiful opportunities for advancement, especially with more advanced degrees

    Cons

    -advice to principals and school officials is often ignored
    -top leader (the superintendent) often makes promises that he cannot keep

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your teachers more, especially those who have worked for a number of years. A number of management members have been out of the classroom for too long and they would do well to listen to those who are still teaching.
