Lead Teacher (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 3, 2017
This institution fosters poor culture for staff that trickles down to scholars. The pay is disgraceful yet the expectations are high. Teachers work extremely hard, yet support that is given does not maximize student results as I've seen after 1 year completed. Most principals lack the seasoned experience to push teachers. It appears there is little quality of training for school leaders. Integrity for school leaders including those at the network level is also low. Turnover for staff including leaders is high. From what I've seen this institution loses quality staff due to poor culture and character of decision makers. Where does the $ go? Definitely not to teacher salaries, building upkeep, or classroom supplies or technology. The focus and $ appears to be spent in building the brand especially when potential investors pay a visit.
