A High Quality Charter School Management Organization
Charter High School Principal (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 26, 2017
This is an organization founded to provide a quality education for children and families in the poorest and historically most neglected sections of Los Angeles (and now well beyond Los Angeles) and it has managed to grow consistently while continuing to evolve and improve. Green Dot is a leader and shining example of how to scale up and serve more cities and neighborhoods without lowering standards.
It can be a bit impersonal at times, since it is a large organization and during my tenure things tended to advance in lockstep, by necessity i suppose, but the standards and aspirations of everyone involved are noble and there is a culture of constant improvement, with plenty of opportunities for people to take on new challenges. The organization and its leadership consistently show courage in seeking out the biggest challenges in the field and giving it their all. The compensation and benefits were competitive and evaluations were always focused on how to help people improve and achieve more satisfaction from their work.
