    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Weston Public Schools full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Administrators often do not place the best interests of children first. Placating parents frequently comes first, regardless of the facts when a crisis occurs. Highly skilled teachers find it more difficult to do their jobs well than in the past. Former administrators tended to recognize the quality and value of their staff. Administrators were not considered adversaries as they tend to be now.
