Stressful school environment and dictatorial workplace
5th Grade and Kindergarten Teacher (Former Employee) – Sulphur Springs Elementary – September 15, 2018
A brutal environment for both teachers and students. Parents were ignored, not welcome at the school even as volunteers. It was a completely closed campus, with fences and gates. Parents had to wait outside the fence to pick ups their children.
All decisions were made by admin, no teacher input or respect for different points of view. Florida DOE is one of the worst, most dictatorial in the country, and Hillsborough county made this even worse by their scripted, test-driven curriculum and micro-management of every teacher's instruction. Teachers had zero flexibility or freedom. A terrible experience.
