    Smoke and Mirrors

    Pros

    Autonomy to teach what you want. Most teachers are excellent at what they do and work extremely hard. They provide a lot support for students and their families.

    Cons

    Leadership is languid and uninspiring. Professional development is a hodgepodge of meetings and PDs that are dull and usually out-sourced to third parties that have no real clue into what's really going on in the classroom. Scheduling and role are frequently changing. Much of this schools "beliefs" and policies, like many charters, are performative. This school does a great job for the kids and the community, but at the expense of its teachers, who carry most of the weight (and usually the blame).

    Administration Plays Favorites; Disorganization Rules

    Pros

    Lots of money available, so no lack of resources. The school cares for their families at large (perception to the outside) so they bend over backwards for them. They pay employees well.

    Cons

    As a new school, there is no sense of community or real organization here. The administration is a mess, never communicates honestly, and doesn’t know how to effectively lead a staff. Most teachers are self-aggrandizing and just bad at their jobs (not certified/badly trained/bullies) and it’s a horrible environment where feedback is encouraged, but actually held against you. The hours are long, expectations for jobs totally unrealistic, and the “growth” potential is capped and very limited.
