    Re: charter school questions

    I have worked at not one, but FOUR different charters. I left two
    of them after they closed due to corruption. The other two I left
    voluntarily (ie: quit over the summer). I was paid at least 15,000
    less than I would have made in the city schools and, with no union,
    you are hired at-will and forced to do what they say or else be
    fired. They break laws, underpay, take advantage of the employees.
    Again, I have worked at four of these places and they are all the
    same. If you need the job, take it. Otherwise, pass. I promise you,
    you'll be totally taken advantage of.
