      Pros

      All about the $, zero care for kids. Management collects fat checks while those on the ground in schools make the bare minimum. None of the top execs are education professionals and should not be making decisions about children.

      Cons

      Low pay, micromanagement, constant turnover and changing in staffing, rapid change in programs adopted, zero follow-through, HR is a NIGHTMARE.

      Pros

      Working from home, especially during COVID pandemic restrictions, was nice. Most of the administrators who bullied teachers and micromanaged teachers were fired this month.

      Cons

      Micromanaging and passive-aggressive, bullying administrators was a con. Low pay, a con. Excessive platforms and excessive data collecting forms was a con. Most of the administrators were not culturally nor ethnically diverse. So many other cons.
