Overall Asheville City Schools excels at providing education and support for their students.
Assistant Teacher's Aide (Former Employee) –  Asheville, NCFebruary 10, 2014
I think the role of teacher never ends in the classroom, and that is something that is part of being a good and effective teacher. Of course this means that often the families of teachers suffer because the priority tends to be students over families. Management is a huge issue in the school system. If the leadership is more concerned with the outward appearance of the situation and not the fundamental principles that guide than there is something wrong that needs to be examined. Discrimination can be subtle and I think that the job culture suffered from the subtle ways that employees were treated more than obvious differences. There was a sense of hierarchy, which I did not always feel was based on the skills of employees but the perceptions of said employees. Many times employees went through extreme crisis, and the attitude directed at them was just get over it. I think there should be help for long term employees in the school who are in crisis in order to come up with solutions that benefit both the school and the employee.
Pros
a school system, which has worked incredibly hard to empower minorities in education.
Cons
employees were overlooked and mistreated often based on prejudices of some management
