Pros: great teachers, principals & students
Cons: no breaks, no healthcare, no full-time in current position
When working for the district, the majority of employees work in schools under the supervision/direction of principals. The disadvantage to this is you have no contact with the higher ups (district management) who control your world. Some school staff have a full-time schedule while working part-time hours. (A new twist on on champagne dreams on a beer budget.) This means no benefits for some classified staff. It's also hard for said staff when they no budget to work with. That said, teachers and principals give their all to their students.
