I had an interview last week, for the first time, with a charter school. They haven't offered me the job yet, though I expect to be, as the interview went very well.
The thing is, I have only ever wanted to work in the public schools. It is my understanding that charter and private schools, while favorable in some areas, don't pay very well. Hey, public schools pay badly enough. And I know that this particular charter school pays the state minimum.
So, I ask all you other teachers...should I seriously consider working in a charter school? Why, or why not?
