Too big to manage effectively
Teacher (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 27, 2019
This district is too big to effectively manage its schools. Teachers are bound to continue teaching by tenure and principals fight to keep long term control of their jobs at the same sites which doesn't benefit anyone. Principals should have a maximum tenure of 4 years at any particular school and not be under so much pressure for performance that drains teachers of motivation. This can currently seen at La Jolla High and Mann Middle or Crawford, both ends of the demographic spectrums, lots of teacher frustration with administration and district policies.
steady paycheck for 10 months
same archaic way of running schools since school was invented
