No Work-Life Balance

Teacher (Current Employee)

ProsGreat benefits and incredible opportunities to learn. Lots of passionate educators.

ConsI feel they draw on your idealism to squeeze out more work than is fair to ask of one person. I want to help underprivileged students, but not at the expense of my own family. There is so much emphasis on evaluating teachers and bombarding teachers with constant strategies to boost student achievement, that I forgot what made me love teaching in the first place.

Aspire seems to be anti-textbook, which means even more work for teachers.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that teaching should be a sustainable professional for people interested in making a career out of it, not just a two year stint for young TFA-ers who burn out and go to law school.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    misleading

    Education Specialist (Current Employee) Stockton, CA (US)

    I have been working at Aspire Public Schools


    Pros: They are interested in determining best practice in general education, general education very defined for those who work for… Cons: You are part of a system not an individual with strengths and weaknesses to be developed, low tolerance for failure to comply to the way… Advice to Senior Management: consider looking at developing a balance approach to education that includes history science which will be subject areas for the students to apply and master… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
