difficult school district
Teacher (Former Employee) – Maricopa, AZ – February 22, 2015
An up & coming school district that has grown like a puppy...it's legs shot out very quickly, but the body is having a hard time catching up. Schools were built very quickly during the housing boom years ago, but since the economy dropped so has the quality of education. Administrators are from the "old school" and it's definitely a good ol' boys club. People are promoted based on who you know, not what you've done or can do. It's a school district that accepts the dregs, the bottom of the educational barrel that cannot get jobs at larger school districts who have higher standards. This is not the case for a majority of classroom teachers, but mainly for administrators.
