First: All district offices are political. Remember
Superintendents are literally political appointees.
Second: I've not workd for SFUSD, but I've known people who
have. Their pay could be better for teachers in the very
expensive Bay Area, but besides that, they're actually not
bad for a big city school district.
Are you going to be a teacher working at the district office,
admin, or some other position? In any case, these jobs are
usually more "political" because they are close to the big
wigs who make the politics, and you don't have the luxury of
retreating to your classroom.
